Day 1: Kepler Track guided heli-hike

We kick off our adventure with a spectacular helicopter flight from Te Anau township, over the hidden lakes to arrive at Luxmore Hut on the Kepler Track. We start our walk 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 change, creating a varied backdrop. The approach to Lake Te Anau is evident as the track meanders through native New Zealand ferns. We’ll finish our hike at the sandy beach of Brod Bay, the pick-up point for the water taxi back to Te Anau township. 

Inclusions

  • Fully guided day walk from Te Anau. Helicopter, water taxi, lunch, accommodation, pick up, and drop off.
Day 2: Milford Track half-day guided walk

Today we’ll be taking a guided walk to Giant Gate Waterfall, on the world-famous Milford Track. The morning starts with a short boat ride from Milford Sound to Sandfly Point. Then we’ll meander alongside the cascading Arthur River through lush rainforest to Giant Gate. An expansive swing bridge spanning the river provides perfect photo opportunities. We’ll be sharing the landscape with a forest of ancient trees, vibrant ferns and mosses, and an unequalled diversity of bird life. 

On conclusion of the walk, we’ll complete our Milford Sound experience with a scenic afternoon boat cruise. Our boat has purpose-built observation lounges and large decks, providing excellent viewing opportunities, including the geological drama of sheer cliffs, massive waterfalls, glaciers and rainforest.
