    BIG bucket list Adventures

    Hike the Milford Track New Zealand

    Why? Complete one of New Zealand s Great(est) Walks in great style. New Zealand has nine official Great Walks and the Milford Track is arguably the greatest of the lot. This four day 53.5km hike from Lake Te Anau to Milford Sound slices through the splendour of Fiordland National Park taking in lakes waterfalls ice fields forest and plenty of pioneer history and tops out at the panoramic Mackinnon Pass (1 154m). In the peak summer trekking months (November April) it s always oversubscribed; camping is not permitted and numbers are limited by the bunk space available in the three DOC lodges en route. That is unless you opt for an upgrade. Ultimate Hikes operates a series of private lodges (with both dorms and doubles) that enable hikers to tramp the track with a guide in a little more comfort. You still have to carry your own bag but unlike those in the DOC huts you get hot showers duvets drying rooms and hairdryers; breakfasts lunches and three course dinners are cooked up for you; each lodge even has a well stocked bar. Cheers to that: a Great Hike indeed.
