New Zealand Private Tour

Local Time

Why You Should Go

Hiking and idyllic walks being among our favorite Lynch Family global travel activities, we feel New Zealand’s extraordinary “Milford Track” to be truly the “finest walk in the world(!)” Located within the picturesque mountains and temperate rainforests of Fiordland National Park, on New Zealand’s South Island, this is one of the globe’s great family outdoor hiking adventures. The Milford Track hiking option is an ideal pristine complement to our luxury New Zealand private tour featuring Queenstown and the spectacular 5,000 acre Wharekauhau Lodge and County Estate near Wellington. The medium level difficulty 33 mi trail (for ages 11 and above) starts at the head of Lake Te Anau (near Queenstown) and ends at otherworldly Milford Sound, traversing lush, green rainforests, wetlands and a striking alpine pass.
