At one time labeled “the finest walk in the world,”  the famed Milford Track starts at the head of Lake Te Anau and finishes in Piopiotahi/Milford Sound. The 33-mile scenic hike is walked in one direction, from Glade Wharf to Piopiotahi/Milford Sound, or south to north, along well-paved trails. It can be walked as part of a guided experience or independently.

The Milford Track hike begins with a boat journey across Lake Te Anau to a remote shore in the middle of Fiordland. Guided walks include transport, accommodation, meals, snacks and can often also include necessary equipment such as  backpacks and rain jackets. Guided walkers stay in separate huts and have a value-added experience through accommodation, hosting and service while independent walkers stay in Department of Conservation (DOC) huts and carry all their equipment and food.  independent walks are operated by a booking system. The track often sells out quickly so plan in advance. The independent DOC huts take a maximum of 40 walkers and provide gas, running water, bunk beds and flush toilets, you provide everything else.
