Itinerary

Day 1 Routeburn Track Guided Walk

On the day after arrival begin the journey being picked up from Radfords on the Lake at 8am with a spectacular scenic drive along the Milford Road to the Divide Shelter, which is the starting point for the guided walk to Key summit. There are opportunities for short nature walks and photo stops along the way.

Departing from the shelter, the walk ascends through lush, temperate rainforest on a well maintained track. The steady climb takes approximately 2 hours at a leisurely pace.

A maximum of 12 walkers with a guide provides an excellent opportunity to learn about the natural and human heritage of Fiordland. Gaining an elevation of 400 metres, emerge from the forest into the alpine environment, with panoramic view of high snowy peaks, alpine lakes, and deep bush clad valleys. On a fine day lunch is on the summit amidst the alpine tarns, and in unfavourable conditions in the shelter of a nearby tramping hut.

After lunch, your steps are retraced to the Divide Shelter before returning to Radfords on the Lake around 5pm

Day 2 Milford Track Guided Walk including a Scenic Cruise on Milford Sound

Make your own way to Milford (leaving Radfords’s by 6am, meeting at Milford Sound Lodge at 8am and retuning at 1pm, soak up the grandeur of a guided walk to Giant’s Gate Falls on the world – famous Milford Track.  Departing from Milford Sound, we begin with a short boat ride to Sandfly Point.  The walk meanders alongside the cascading Arthur River through lush rainforest to Giant’s Gate Falls.  This spectacular waterfall is best viewed from the large swing bridge spanning the river.  There is much to see, from the ancient tree’s towering above, to the vibrant ferns and mosses, plus the array of birdlife inhabiting this lush environment.

On conclusion of your guided walk, complete the Milford Sound experience with an afternoon Scenic Boat Cruise 1hour 45minutes in length leaving at 1.45pm returning at 3.25pm.  With purpose-built observation lounges and large decks, you can be sure you’ll get some great viewing opportunities including the geological drama of sheer cliffs, massive waterfalls, glaciers and rainforest.

NOTE:  Transport can be arranged at an additional charge of $100 per person return if required.

Day 3 Kepler Track Guided Heli-hike

Experience a guided heli-hike on the Kepler Track.  Pick up from Radfords at 10am, begin with a spectacular flight by helicopter from Te Anau Township, over the Hidden Lakes to arrive at Luxmore Hut.  The walk begins in the alpine area then descends through magnificent beach forests.  The effects of different altitude and weather conditions experienced in Fiordland are clear to see, as the tree’s and undergrowth quickly changes,  creating a varied backdrop for your hike.  We conclude the hike at Sandy Beach of Brod Bay, the pick up point for the water taxi back to Te Anau township returning at 3.30pm.

  • "From the easy parking to the super warm welcome from Kerri & the brilliant night's sleep - what's not to like at Radfords? Great location - 5 mins walk to the main street, 10-12 mins at most to the farthest restaurant - 2 mins to the seaplane, 5 mins to the heliport & 30 seconds to the lakeside - so well positioned. Rooms large, fast Wifi, did I say comfy bed? Large bathrooms & well-equipped kitchenettes & spotlessly clean rooms - each had a lovely spot to sit outside for an afternoon wine. Kerri is a hive of information about the local sights & eats - upon her recommendation, we ate at Redcliff & Fat Duck - both fantastic. If you have time do the Heli-Hike with Southern Lakes Heli to the Kepler Track - all-day activity but SO worth it."

  • "What a magical stay... the best accommodation and most impressive host during our two-week SI road trip. Kerri was so warm, and helpful and gave us the best tips for our stay (Redcliff's Restaurant and the Cruise Milford experiences were amazing). The location of the property was perfect, with views of the lake and the rooms were beautiful... exactly how they look in the photos. Stunningly fitted out, comfortable bed and the added benefit of great kitchenette facilities to prepare your own breakfast, if preferred. We, (two couples) would definitely return."

Just like you, we love our stunning Fiordland environment 💚 Caring for our local wildlife is super important for us - did you know we’re proud supporters of the Antipodes Island Parakeet, also known as the Kākāriki?

Thanks to fantastic conservation efforts from our friends at Te Anau Bird Sanctuary (only a 20 minute walk from us), these special birds are being protected from extinction.
It’s that time of the year to vote for Bird of the Year for 2021 - so jump on with us and vote and if you can make a donation towards their great efforts.
