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.

The staff are so friendly and lent us bug spray when we went on our boat ride and gloves when we went on our jet boat ride as it was cold. It is a great location and we definitely recommend it."

Why, meow, two-legged pals. 

 I’m Dexter Dude, and this is my second attempt at a short news update on Te Anau from my particular purry perspective. Because despite my small stature, and my priority being snoozing in a patch of sun most of the time, I’m actually surprisingly up-to-speed with the goings on around here.

On Saturday July 10th it sounds like the Kepler Track is going to be bustling. There’s a family-friendly Matariki Night Time Nature Walk to discover the forest after dark, and spot some of the delicious interesting creatures that live there. Registrations are required, so get in quick https://www.doc.govt.nz/news/events/regional-events/fiordland-events/booking-form-fiordland/

That’s all from me for the month. Catch you next time! 
🐾 all my fluffy love, Dexter.

Winter is officially here! And the beautiful stillness of Lake Te Anau is second to none at this time of the year. In fact, the whole Fiordland region is stunning this season; things are a little bit quieter outside of the peak spring and summer Great Walks and general exploration period, meaning you can take a moment to catch your breath and soak in the scenery. 
We’d love to host you here at Radfords on the Lake for a midwinter break. Time it with the school holidays next month to treat the kiddos to a calm, crisp Doubtful or Milford Sound experience. Or take the time to yourself – as a couple or alone – to tick this trip off your Kiwi adventure bucket list.
