Overview

The stunning beauty of the Milford Track has made it a world-renowned hiking destination. Huts get packed so book well ahead of time when spaces are made available sometime between February to July before the summer season begins. If you want to include the wonderful Milford Sound Experience, consider getting our Milford Track Premium Package walk. The sparkling jewel in Fiordland’s crown, the Milford Track is New Zealand’s most popular trail.

The Milford Track is the pinnacle of the New Zealand Great Walks and has become a bucket-list experience for many hikers. For more than 150 years, lovers of beautiful hikes have come to the Milford Track to marvel at its majestic mountains, towering waterfalls and pristine lakes that set the Milford Track apart from the other Great Walks. Gaze up at the highest waterfall in New Zealand, traverse a dramatic mountain pass, and cross over suspension bridges. Milford Track is spectacular at any time of the year. Visit when it’s warm and sunny and you’ll be rewarded with postcard-worthy views, but rivers of water tumbling town lofty mountainsides only appear when it rains, a view that will remain with you for a long time. At the end of it all, your effort will be rewarded with splendid views of Milford Sound, one of the most beautiful places in New Zealand.

The Milford Track is well-maintained and easy to follow so hiking it independently is a popular and a very ‘kiwi’ choice. Hike on your own terms, at your own pace, on the Milford Track to achieve a more personal hiking experience.
