Trek through some of New Zealand’s most awe-inspiring landscapes on this ultimate hiking trip. Based in Fiordland National Park, you’ll trek along the Kepler, Milford, and Routeburn Tracks, passing through temperate rainforests, alongside sparkling blue rivers, and over rugged mountains to experience nature’s bounty.


This 4-day New Zealand tour takes you on three incredible hikes through Fiordland National Park and Milford Sound. It includes moderate accommodations, shared tours, and is ideal for active travellers wanting to explore New Zealand’s famous outdoors.

Your journey begins in Te Anau, the gateway to Fiordland National Park. After getting your bearings in the town for the night, you’ll begin your journey through the park. On the first day, hike along the Kepler Track. Fly in a helicopter high over Lake Te Anau to Luxmore Hut, where you’ll begin your walk through the alpine beech forest of this gorgeous landscape and end your day at the sandy beach of Brod Bay. The next day, you’ll explore picturesque Milford Sound, the most-photographed sight in New Zealand. Take a boat ride to Sandfly Point and climb along the Arthur River to Giant’s Gate Falls, where you’ll walk across a swing suspension bridge for the best views of the falls. Complete your day with a cruise across Milford Sound and enjoy the spectacular view of Mitre Peak, which towers above the waters. On the final day, hike along the Routeburn Track Great Walk to Key Summit. Pass through temperate rainforest and spot alpine herb fields before reaching the summit, where you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the mountains, lakes, and valleys.

At the end of your journey, return to Te Anau to connect to your next destination.

Kepler Guided Heli-Hike

Experience a guided heli-hike on the Kepler Track. Begin with a spectacular flight by helicopter from Te Anau Township, over the hidden lakes to arrive at Luxmore Hut. The walk begins in the alpine area then descends through magnificent beech forest. The effects of different altitude and weather conditions experienced in Fiordland are clear to see, as the trees and undergrowth quickly changes, creating a varied backdrop for your hike. We conclude the hike at the sandy beach of Brod Bay, the pick-up point for the water taxi back to Te Anau township.
