Track end Point: Sandfly Point - boat across to Milford Sound.

Duration: 4 days - 3 nights, though the first day to Clinton Hut is only 5 km so allows for a leisurely start!

Getting there: The closest international and domestic airport is Queenstown, we recommend you begin here if flying into the area.
