Your adventure starts in Te Anau. Meet your bus and guides at the Ultimate Hikes desk in the Kiwi Country on the corner of Miro and Town Centre.
You will then travel along the shores of Lake Te Anau to the boat harbour at Te Anau Downs. Enjoy a hot drink aboard an hour long boat journey to the northern end of the lake and the start of the Milford Track. Disembarking, you will walk a short 1.6km (1 mile) to the historic Glade House.
Here we enjoy a scrumptious lunch from the kitchen. After visiting the small museum there, you'll follow the Clinton River through rich Beech forest. Your guide will point out aspects of the forest and history to you along the way.
On the return, you will walk up the Glade Burn Track for a fantastic view of Lake Te Anau before descending down a dry river bed to the return launch.
