Experience some of the Milford Track’s highlights on a one-day guided adventure.
The four-day Milford Track is one of the most renowned walking experiences in the world. If you do not have four days available, a guided day walk offers the chance to experience a taste of this stunning track.
Join your guide in Te Anau and take a short coach trip to Te Anau Downs. From there, you’ll enjoy a one-hour scenic lake cruise to the start of the Milford Track.
The walk begins with a gentle stroll via the Glade Burn to historic Glade House for lunch and a hot drink. Walk alongside the emerald waters of the Clinton River, then cross a swing bridge and stroll through ancient beech forest.
Along the way, your nature guide will explain the track’s history and point out native birds and plants. There is plenty of time for you to enjoy the scenery and take photos. The walking is easy and relaxed and there are no big climbs.
