Immerse yourself in New Zealand’s best nature with this 4-day, short but super sweet walking trip. Base yourself in Te Anau, the gateway to Fiordland National Park and the famed Milford Sound – and explore at your own pace. Take on some of the South Island’s most gorgeous hiking trails and wander atop mountain peaks, through lush rainforests and by shimmering lakes like Lake Manapouri and Lake Ada. Witness the majesty of Milford Sound – on foot and boat – and look out for fur seals, bottleneck dolphins and numerous cascading waterfalls. Brave high swing bridges with beech forest views, listen to the birdsong of tuis, bellbirds and kereru and breathe in some of the freshest air in the world.

Intrepid-Trips & Tramps "Walk New Zealand's Fiordland National Park" A wonderful way to taste the NZ Great Walks and the beautiful landscapes of New Zealand's Fiordland. Each day a different aspect of the region followed by a comfortable night in the lovely township of Te Anau. Great comradeship of a small group along with the fun of the Glow Worm cave, eBikes and a Jet boat. Many thanks to Rohann Mackrell of Trips & Tramps as a wonderful guide and for expertly show casing the region.
