Our commitment to Conservation & Sustainable Tourism

Ultimate Hikes is proud to work with the Department of Conservation and Wildlife Trusts on conservation and predator control in our World Heritage National Parks.

We hold Tourism New Zealand's highest award for sustainable tourism, Qualmark Gold and are committed to providing a safe and sustainable experience for everyone.


Why walk with us?

Because you can still experience the beauty of New Zealand's landscapes with the support of our experienced guides; the comfort of private lodges and the luxury of having the details organised for you. Enjoy daily breakfasts, freshly packed lunches and dinner prepared for you each evening. A bar is available to purchase a relaxing glass of wine or a cold beer. We’ll take care of the logistics too, with daily departures and returns from Queenstown.

"Awesome experience with ultimate hikes walking the Milford Track. The guides were amazing! Highly recommend this company - from the very first contact we had with them, the proactive communications, always responding to our emails and especially for caring for the environment in many of your processes. The lodge staff were also incredibly positive and welcoming especially after a long day of walking - thank you all the team for making this a great time away!"
