The Milford Track has been described as the “finest walk in the world”. If you are short of time and wish to enjoy the Scenic Southern end of the Milford Track at the Northern tip of Lake Te Anau then this is the day tour for you.
We will pick you up for your Milford Track guided day walk from your Te Anau accommodation at 9am and transfer you by comfortable passenger vehicle to Te Anau Downs (a 30 minute drive) to connect with our Milford Track vessel.
We will then cruise 30kms by boat to the Milford Track, stopping occasionally for photo opportunities and to enjoy morning tea before we begin our Milford Track walk.
We walk past the historic Glade House to the Clinton River Swingbridge and then continue on up the Clinton River to take in the views of the magnificent Clinton Valley.
Your guide will point out flora, fauna and birdlife along the way before returning to the Glade Clearings via the Wetlands for lunch. A final hike up to the Glade Burn for lovely views of Lake Te Anau before returning to Te Anau by 6pm.
