A helicopter flight, Milford Sound cruise, and five nights of accommodation at Dunluce are included—and we’ve done all the planning and logistics 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 onto the Summit of Mt Luxmore by helicopter to walk the Kepler, 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 most 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 6.30 am and 8.30 am to begin the day’s adventure.
