Milford Track

Upon landing at Milford Sound you will meet your guide for the day and take a short boat ride from the Milford boat terminal to Sandfly Point to begin your walk on the Milford Track. We begin our guided walk, meandering alongside the cascading Arthur River then Lake Ada, on a well formed track. Our destination and half way point is Giant Gate waterfall. This spectacular waterfall is best viewed and photographed from the large swing bridge spanning the river and, on completion of the walk, an opportunity is made for photos at the sign marking the end of the walk, festooned with the boots of walkers that have made it to the end of the walk. After your transfer back to the Milford boat terminal fly back to Queenstown.
