Milford Track Guided Walk
- Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Milford Sound
Departing from Deepwater Basin at Milford Sound, the walk begins with a short boat ride to Sandfly Point.
Enjoy an easy 5.5 km (11 km return) walk alongside the cascading Arthur River and moody Lake Ada, on a well-maintained track. From the ancient canopy trees towering above to the emerald-green ferns below and the birdsong that echoes through the trees, it is a unique World Heritage Area best explored by foot. Our destination is the impressive Giant Gate This spectacular waterfall is best viewed from the large swing bridge spanning the river.
We then return at a leisurely pace, taking the time to enjoy this incredible forest. The small group of 12 walkers to 1 Trips & Tramps guide provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the fascinating human heritage of the track. On completion of the walk an opportunity is made for photos at the sign marking the end the track. Walkers then re-join the boat for the transfer back to Milford.
