Hollyford Track

The Hollyford Track takes hikers on a stunning journey from the mountains to the sea. Begin beneath sheer mountain slopes carved by glaciers and emerge days later to the rugged beauty of the West Coast. The Four Day Guided Wilderness Experience of the Hollyford Track offers the chance to visit this stunning part of the Fiordland National Park. Following the course of the Hollyford River, the Hollyford Track is a low-altitude walk along the valley floor, very achievable for those with a reasonable level of fitness.

What to Expect

Mountains to the Sea

The Hollyford Track follows the Hollyford River/Whakatipu Ka Tuka on its journey from the sheer rock walls of Fiordlands Darran Mountains to the wild West Coast.

Changing Scenery

Stare in awe at the dramatic glacier-carved landscape, lush lowland forests and the beauty of Lake Alabaster and Lake McKerrow.

Call of the Kaka

Listen for the Kaka, our large and rather loud forest parrots, who frequent the valley and often call at dusk

Martins Bay

Your destination is the rugged yet beautiful coast of Martins Bay, home to the Fiordland crested penguins/tawaki.
