At A Glance Departures

Walk the Hollyford Track, an unforgettable Fiordland tramp from the mountains to the sea. The Hollyford Track 3 day / 2 night hiking tour is an ideal way to experience the very essence of New Zealand's wilderness and its rich history. You will transect the Hollyford Valley by foot, jet boat and finally take a scenic flight into Milford Sound.

Beginning amongst the sheer rock walls of the Darran Mountains in Fiordland National Park, the Hollyford Track follows the Hollyford River/Whakatipu Kā Tuka on its journey to the sea at Martins Bay, on the wild West Coast. Marvel at Fiordland's two highest peaks, Mount Tutoko (2746 metres) and Mount Madeline (2537 metres). Retracing the footsteps of original Māori and early pioneer explorers, you'll journey through native beech forest and hear the roaring cascade of Hidden Falls.

Along the way your experienced local guide will bring to life the diversity of the landscape, vegetation, wildlife and captivating stories of the original Māori and early pioneering families. You'll pass ancient forests with thousand year old giants such as native Rimu, Totara, and Kahikatea, and discover many small birds like the tomtit, robin and bellbird.

At the end of each day, you'll return to your cosy lodge and enjoy 3 courses of fine cuisine prepared by your friendly and professional lodge hosts.

The trip concludes with a helicopter flight into Milford Sound.

  • Accommodation

They are both very well appointed with dining and lounge areas, open fires, drying rooms, separate flush toilet and shower facilities with unlimited hot water, soap, shampoo, towels and hair dryers provided.

    Pyke Lodge
    Set at the confluence of the Hollyford and Pyke Rivers, Pyke River Lodge is nestled amid native forest beneath converging mountain ranges. It's a great place to unwind at the end of the day, and from here we are often treated to spectacular sunrise and sunset views of majestic Mt. Madeline and the Darren Range.

    Martins Bay Lodge
    Martins Bay Lodge is a wonderful home away from home, located on the lowland flats close to mouth of the Hollyford River. Its beautiful huge windows showcase the remarkable scenery of the remote surroundings. Cheeky Kea, a large alpine parrot, often play in the Cabbage Trees outside the lodge at dusk and the sound of the surf on nearby Martins Bay Spit is a soothing evening soundtrack.

While every effort will be made to provide the services and experiences as offered in our brochure, on our website, and in our trip letters, we reserve the right to vary your itinerary. In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided.

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which OCT4 Pty Ltd or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure OCT4 Pty Ltd will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.

    reviews My New Zealand holiday was the trip of a lifetime. Incredible countrysides, wonderful hikes, totally terrific guides, wonderful lodging and excellent food! I came on this holiday alone and I was made to feel part of the team by the guides and fellow hikers. I was encouraged to complete each hike by both guides who were very supportive and helpful. This trip bought some lasting lifelong memories and new friends.
