4 Great walks in 4 days

Ever wanted to hike the Great Walks of New Zealand but could never decide which one? Then this trip is for you!

With the added bonus of spending your nights relaxing at the luxurious Fiordland Lodge (MUCH more comfortable than a bunk bed in a DOC hut!) you will spend a day each on the well-known Milford, Routeburn and Kepler Tracks as well as getting to experience our newest Great Walk with a helicopter adventure on the incredible Hump Ridge Track.

Day 1

Fiordland Lodge

Fiordland Lodge (5 nights)

Set in a World Heritage Area, Fiordland Lodge offers the discerning traveler comfort and privacy, and is the perfect base to explore the surrounding Fiordland National Park. The elegance and splendour of the Lodge is mirrored in the breathtaking views of Lake Te Anau and Fiordland. Private and serene, the Lodge is perfect for relaxation, or as a base for your Fiordland experiences.

Start with the The Kepler Track Guided Heli Hike which begins with a spectacular Scenic flight by helicopter from Te Anau Township, over the hidden lakes and beech forest of Mount Luxmore to arrive at Luxmore Hut to enjoy the panoramic views of the Te Anau basin, scenic lakes and surrounding Fiordland Mountains.

From this Department of Conservation Hut explore the alpine tussock fields and enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding Fiordland Mountains. After time in the alpine area, hike down the mountain on a well-formed track. The track descends through mountain and silver beech forest, and passes under towering limestone bluffs to the sandy beach of Brod Bay, the pickup point for the boat cruise back to Te Anau.

You will also enjoy an amazing jet boat trip down a remote Fiordland river, which very few get to experience, plus a great Heli ride!

From Te Anau you will first transfer by road to Lake Hauroko to connect with Wairaurahiri Jet. Travel by jetboat across Lake Hauroko and down the Wairaurahiri River to the Waitutu Lodge to enjoy a delicious lunch. You will then be collected by helicopter to fly over to the famous Percy Burn Viaduct and then up to Okaka Lodge. From here enjoy walking a section of the Hump Ridge Track- the views are incredible! You will then fly back to Lake Hauroko before then being transferred back to Te Anau by road.
