Landing at the beginning of your hike of the Hollyford Track, a lesser known walk compared to Milford and Routeburn, but just as glorious! The Hollyford Track is a hike you can do any time of the year, with no alpine sections, this track is rarely cut off by snow so you can hike it any time of the year - depending on the weather.

On completion of the hike, you will have a bus waiting for you at the Hollyford road end to take you back to Te Anau for a well earned rest.
