Milford Track Guided Walk

Enjoy a taste of the 'finest walk in the world' with a day hike

Soak up the grandeur of the world-famous Milford Track with a guided walk to Giant's Gate Falls.  This New Zealand Great Walk is suitable for all abilities and there is much to see. From the ancient canopy trees towering above to the emerald-green ferns below and the birdsong that echoes through the trees, it is a unique World Heritage Area best explored by foot.

Morning Guided Walk

Departing from Milford Sound, we begin with a short boat ride to Sandfly Point. The guided walk meanders alongside the cascading Arthur River through lush rainforest to Giant Gate. This spectacular waterfall is best viewed from the large swing bridge spanning the river.

Walking at an easy going pace in a small group, your knowledgable, friendly Trips & Tramps nature guide will point out the native plants and birds inhabiting this lush environment, and share the track’s stories, bringing the history of the area to life.

The Trip

Depart Te Anau for Milford Sound with your own transport or join Trips & Tramps from Te Anau to travel the world’s most scenic alpine highway to Milford Sound.

From Milford Sound, join the water taxi to Sandfly Point and the Milford Track, then walk to Giant Gate Waterfall, an iconic and highly photographed waterfall. The track is flat and well maintained through spectacular forest, river and lake scenery.

Trip Add-ons

Return transport available from Te Anau.

Round off your day with a Milford Scenic Boat Cruise, explore more of Milford Sound with a full day package Milford Track and Cruise
