Everything about this experience exceeded my expectations. The trail & views were amazing; the guides were awesome - knowledgeable, encouraging, & fun; each lodge & its staff were flawless & welcoming after a long day's hike. Anyone who loves to hike can do this. It is not just for elite athletes. There are guides positioned at the front & back,... More

It seems like I've always wanted to walk the Milford Track. But at nearly 50 with a dodgy back & a love for my creature comforts, there was no way I was doing it the freedom walker way. Freedom walkers might scoff at those of us who prefer the more comfortable option, but companies like Ultimate Hikes make the track... More

In 1996 I was working offshore in Bangladesh with a guy that had recently walked the Milford Track and the passion at which he described the hike left me with a lasting desire to do the trek. My wife and I just returned from the hike and I now understand why that guy was so passionate about the hike. I... More

We have just completed the GT. What a great experience! A 6 day adventure from the Greenstone track through to the Routeburn track. I went with my partner and three friends we all had varying fitness levels. Definitely a great experience but don't underestimate climbing over rocks and tree roots and very changeable weather conditions for 66kms. The guides Brydie,... More

We've done some big walks, but we're used to doing them on a much smaller budget so we were a bit nervous about spending so much money when we calculated this out to a per night cost. In the end we thought we'd splurge for a 50th and do the 5-day guided hike. We're really glad we did as it's... More

Five family members just completed the guided Milford Track walk. We had a great time, even though the weather was not ideal. The guides were fun and helpful, and between all the snacks, drinks, and amenities at the lodges, we really felt like we got huge value for the price of the hike. Access to a heater at the pass...

I had wanted to hike the Milford Track for 20 years and on 14-17 November 2016 was lucky enough to be part of Group 14 with guides Adie, Ellis, Veronica and Charlotte. There were 48 in our party and the guides’ talents of managing the group, facilitating friendships, providing help and encouragement where required, and letting people walk by themselves... More

This was one of the best excursions my wife and I have ever made. Our guides Grace, Mark, Jon and Fumi took care of us without ever mothering, made sure we were safe and happy and managed to make us all feel special. This is especially incredible when you consider that for Grace, this was her 58th guided walk on... More

This time, we did the Milford Track with Ultimate Hikes. A few years ago we did the Routeburn with them. We were impressed then by the organisation, friendly guides and great food and now we are "evangelists" for this company. We were the first group out for the season on November 1 - a large group of 50, including a... More

This was my first multi day hike, and I was not disappointed. Ultimate Hikes did a wonderful job at organising every detail of the hike - it was seamless. Walking this track was a surreal experience, and the beauty was truly breathtaking. Reaching the top of Mackinnon Pass felt like such an achievement and the views - just WOW. We... More
