Stay & Explore Milford Track 1-night Package

The Milford Track evokes images of epic hiking and sublime scenery, but also carrying heavy packs and sleeping in huts. Here, we invite you to see what all the fuss is about - but without the packs and huts. Our Stay & Explore package gives you access to the Milford Track via water taxi for a one-day walk, a must-do Milford Sound Cruise and an incredible one-night stay at Milford Sound Lodge.

Milford Track Day Hike Transport

Just minute’s from the lodge, the Fiordland Outdoors Co. water taxi transfers you from Deepwater Basin to Sandfly Point on the Milford Track. Walk at your own pace as you explore the wonders of Fiordland National Park and discover why the Milford Track is revered as one of the world’s finest walks. Pass through mighty beech and rimu forest and a backdrop of birdsong. In less than two hours of walking, you can reach Giant Gate Falls, a highlight of the Milford Track and the perfect place to stop for a picnic lunch.


A flat and easy-going section of the track, the walk is suitable for most abilities. It will take approximately three to four hours to do the return walk to Giant Gate Falls if you choose to walk that far. Push yourself a little further knowing the sanctuary of the lodge awaits where everything is taken care of. From the comfort and relaxation of a chalet or a tranquil campervan site to the ease of Pio Pio restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner.


Staying at Milford Sound Lodge puts you in the heart of a World-Heritage-listed destination. See what lies beyond the water’s edge and step onto the Milford Track for a deeper connection to a majestic ecosystem. To see more, we have added a Milford Sound Cruise on the day of your arrival with the Milford Track Day Hike the next morning.  See more, do more in Milford Sound.
