Milford Track

This is one of the worlds most famous tracks and is a must do. Put this near the top of your bucket list. This is a long hike and you need to carry everything with you in a pack, so you will need to be fit for this walk. Located in a Regional Park and travels through some of the most beautiful areas of New Zealand. 

There are two ways to travel this track, the low cost way is to carry everything with you, this is how I did it and you need to be much fitter for this. Or you can have your meals and bags flown over night for you by helicopter, higher cost but less to carry and you still get to see all.
