Track Taster

 Small group of paddlers at Milford Sound New Zealand
Join us on this great half day, afternoon trip that starts with a leisurely paddle around Deep Water Basin in Milford Sound and up to the infamous Sandfly Point (finish point for the 4 day Milford Track walk). 

With an experienced guide and small group of kayakers you’ll explore the shores of the Arthur River along the way, before setting foot on the world famous Milford Track. 

Enjoy an easy walk along the track, admiring the impressive waterfalls and birdlife along the way and learn about the history of the area from your guide.  

You will spend approximately 2 hours on the track and 2 hours kayaking on this trip – it is a great mix of paddling and walking and a perfect opportunity to get out and experience Fiordland.
