Ultimate Hikes takes you on a New Zealand hiking adventure of a lifetime
Imagine you are walking through a rainforest untouched for thousands of years or following an alpine track with mountain ranges above and valley's below. You are in a pristine World Heritage Area, where the water runs crystal clear, remote from all civilization save for your walking companions and guides equipped with a radio, knowledge and friendly smile.
Now imagine you have walked all day and you'd love a hot shower and to relax in clean clothes with a drink, while someone else is cooking your dinner and a warm bed is waiting for you.
Don't imagine it - live it!
Ultimate Hikes makes this experience a reality for thousands of hikers from New Zealand and all over the world each year. We have a range of all inclusive guided walks across the Milford, Routeburn and Greenstone Tracks.
Each trip offers a truly unique experience hiking in New Zealand's magnificent landscapes of the Fiordland and Mt Aspiring National Parks. Walk at your own pace, in your own time, safe in the knowledge a guide will always be behind you, offering as little or as much assistance as you need.
You need only to carry your personal belongings, and if you follow our advice your pack shouldn't weigh more than 5-7 kg. Accommodation on our multi-day walks is provided in our private lodges, with three course meals, hot showers, drying rooms, flush toilets and snug beds. Our walks include all transport from and back to Queenstown, and walkers are accompanied by our knowledgable guides who put your welfare and safety as their first priority.
All you need to do is decide which walk is right for you.
