The Fiordland Great Walks package showcases the highlight reels of three of New Zealand’s ‘Great Walks’. A helicopter flight, Milford Sound cruise and five nights of accommodation at Dunluce are included—and we’ve done all the planning for you… All you need to do is show up ready for some fun and adventure!
Your epic three-day hiking experience will take you along sections of the Milford, Routeburn and Kepler tracks with the company of an experienced and friendly guide. You’ll drop in to the Kepler track by helicopter, take a cruise across Milford Sound and climb the incredible Key Summit on the Routeburn Track to take in panoramic views of the nearby mountains, lakes and native bush.
This package is suitable for all fitness levels. You won’t need to carry heavy backpacks, worry about having all the right gear or suffer through an ordinary night’s sleep en route to the best parts of the tracks. Instead, this experience is designed to be fun, easy and stress-free!
Breakfast is provided daily before you’re collected from Dunluce between 6.30am and 8.30am to begin the day’s adventure. Included is a picnic lunch and you’ll return each evening between 4.00pm and 6.00pm. A complimentary laundry service will also be provided so that all you need to do on your return to Dunluce each evening is rest, relax and recharge. We've included a free day up your sleeve in case of any weather disruptions and to explore Te Anau.
While we are walking distance to the town Centre, it is recommended to provide or organize your own transport for evening outings such as dinner.
