Itinerary

Day 1 – Arrive to Fiordland lodge

When you travel to Fiordland, you will be visiting one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand. Fiordland has achieved World Heritage status and is renowned as home to the famous Fiords of Milford and Doubtful Sounds.

Focusing on environmental sustainability and key luxury standards, Fiordland Lodge is ‘gateway to the fiords’ and the perfect base for your Fiordland experience. On the edge of almost 1.2 million hectares of mountain, lake, fiord and rainforest environment the Lodge is perched on a hill nestled on the edge of Lake Te Anau, with a spectacular backdrop of Mt Luxmore and the Murchison mountains. Fiordland Lodge’s open architecture reflects the vastness of the Fiordland National Park, high ceilings, full trunk pillars and a massive river stone fireplace provide a warm spacious environment with a sense of solidity and style.

Step inside and you will understand why this unique lodge is known for exceptional hospitality. Fiordland lodge prides itself on offering a very high standard of customer care, never obtrusive, but always on hand to grant all guests needs and expectations. There are no ‘dinner jacket requirements’ here, no crowds, only relaxation. At Fiordland Lodge, a maximum of 27 guests are accommodated in 10 luxurious rooms in the Lodge and two separate self-contained loft-style Log Cabins as well as a new 4-Bedroom Owners Residence. Accommodation features king-size beds, well-appointed private bathrooms and superb views, and the decor reflects the beautiful Fiordland landscape, focusing on muted natural colours and textures. Our log cabins provide secluded accommodation for a maximum of five guests separate to the main lodge. All accommodation options have commanding views over Lake Te Anau and external access out onto either the balcony upstairs or the lawn downstairs.

Fiordland Lodge offers the discerning traveller style, comfort and privacy, yet is only five kilometres from the tourist township of Te Anau. Set on a superb site with commanding views out across Lake Te Anau this is a rural setting with rolling grasslands surrounding the Lodge, Lake Te Anau being a mere ten minute walk away. Across the lake to the west lie the mountains of Fiordland National Park, an area of over three million acres of untouched wilderness and part of the much larger South West New Zealand World Heritage Area.

 

Day 2 – Kepler Track Guided Heli-Hike

Experience a guided heli-hike on the Kepler Track. Begin with a spectacular flight by helicopter from Te Anau Township, over the hidden lakes to arrive at Luxmore Hut on the Kepler Track. The walk begins in the alpine area then descends through the magnificent beech forest. The effects of different altitude and weather conditions experienced in Fiordland are clear to see, as the trees and undergrowth quickly change, creating a varied backdrop. The approach to Lake Te Anau is evident as the track meanders through native New Zealand ferns. The hike is finished at the sandy beach of Brod Bay, the pick-up point for the water taxi back to Te Anau township.

 

Day 3 – Milford Track Guided Walk & Cruise

Experience a guided walk to Giant Gate Waterfall on the world-famous Milford Track. Departing from Milford Sound begin with a short boat ride to Sandfly Point. Then meander alongside the cascading Arthur River through lush rainforest to Giant Gate. An expansive swing bridge spanning the river provides perfect photo opportunities. A forest of ancient trees, vibrant ferns and mosses, and diverse birdlife – unequalled anywhere.

At the conclusion of the walk complete the Milford Sound experience with an afternoon Scenic Boat Cruise 1 hour 40 minutes in length. With purpose-built observation lounges and large decks, clients will have excellent viewing opportunities including the geological drama of sheer cliffs, massive waterfalls, glaciers and rainforest.

 

Day 4 – Routeburn Track Guided Walk

Enjoy a guided walk to Key Summit on the renowned Routeburn Track. This spectacular walk ascends through lush, temperate rainforest and onto a unique alpine herb field. On the summit, hikers experience panoramic views of mountains, alpine lakes, and deep, glacial carved bush clad valleys. Walking in a small group, the Trips & Tramps guide provides an excellent opportunity to learn about this stunning natural environment.

 

Day 5 – Departure

You can depart anytime after breakfast.
