Milford Track 1/2 Day Guided Walk
Available 1st October to 30 April. Experience a guided walk on the 'finest walk in the world'. Departing from Milford Sound this 11 km walk meanders alongside the cascading river to the spectacular waterfall Giants Gate and is suitable for all abilities.
We begin with a short boat ride across Milford Sound’s Deep Water Basin to Sandfly Point, adeptly named as you will see! This is the end point of the Milford Track, but the start of our Milford hike. From there we begin our guided walk, meandering alongside the cascading Arthur River then Lake Ada, on a well formed track. Our destination and half way point is Giants Gate waterfall. This spectacular waterfall is best viewed and photographed from the large swing bridge spanning the river.
There is much to see, from the ancient trees towering above, to the vibrant green ferns and mosses below. Walking in a small group (maximum 12 people), your Trips & Tramps nature guide will point out the native fauna and flora, and share the fascinating human heritage of the track, bringing the area to life.
On completion of the walk an opportunity is made for photos at the sign marking the end of the walk, festooned with the boots of walkers that have made it to the end of the walk, not a single step further. Then we rejoin the boat for a transfer back to the Milford village.
