Managed to include a trek (or tramp) into our 3 week trip around South Island. We're experienced walkers and wanted to experience one of the classic treks during our trip so the Hollyford Track ticked all the boxes.
We were extremely lucky with the weather, enjoyed the company of the rest of the group, the guides were exceptional (Bard & Miki). The accommodation at both Pyke Lodge & Martins bay were very comfortable and the food exceeded expectations.
This isn't a challenging trek, no real climbs but I'm sure if the going is wet, you could get very muddy and really need the drying room at the lodge. The first day is the longest, (about 19k walking), especially if you start out from Queenstown as pick up is at 6.30am before the transfer firstly to Te Anau then the start point of the trek. Day 2 is about 15k but the terrain is more varied, ending up at the Tasman Sea looking at the Seals. Day 3 is about 5k and ends by lunchtime for the helicopter transfer to Milford Sound which was amazing.
Very well organised, if you are transferring back to Queenstown don't expect to arrive much before 6.30pm so it is a long day of travelling.
Very well organised, a good way to combine seeing Fiordland and a trek.
