Fiordland is one of the world’s finest walking destinations, the major drawcards being the spectacular multi-day Milford, Kepler, Routeburn, and Hollyford Tracks (the three former being New Zealand Great Walks). Aside from these well-known hikes, there are also dozens of popular short walks and challenging lesser known tracks and routes which offer awe-inspiring experiences for families through to expert trampers.
