Finest Walk in the World?
The most famous tramp in New Zealand, the Milford Track is often called the Finest Walk in the World. It is great 4 days; over a mountain saddle, sprayed by spectacular Sutherland Falls, boating on spectacular Milford Sound. Rudyard Kipling called Milford Sound the eighth wonder of the world.
The Milford Track is wild wet terrain; lakes, rivers, waterfalls, rainforest, beech and podocarp forest, alpine meadows. The fishing is superb. You enjoy amazing views from well marked, mostly easy track.
Some (including many Kiwis) prefer nearby alpine alternatives; the Routeburn, Kepler, Cascade Saddle or Dusky Sound Tracks. No doubt about it, the Southern Alps of New Zealand is one of the most fabulous hiking destinations on Earth.
