Definitely a great activity to do if you are in Queensland. This 5-day trip is well organized, and the guides are super friendly, fun & enthusiastic. The walk is not easy so a little fitness preparation before would make the walking experience more enjoyable. MUST BRING walking sticks and bugs repellent. The sandflies were the most hateful, annoying of the... More

The Grand Traverse was an unknown quantity to me, it exceeded my expectations and the accommodation was fabulous.

My Wife and I did the Milford track walk with this company. The staff on the hike were superb. The huts and food were superb. This reflected on the company's well thoughtout logistics behind the scene. We wanted for nothing except a single day of bad weather.

If you think you're too old to tackle a multi-day NZ track, carrying all your provisions on your back, think again! Ultimate Hikes makes the Routeburn and Milford Tracks an option for anyone who likes to hike. We joined a friendly group of mostly 50 plus folks from all over the world for 3 days on the Routeburn Track (essentially... More

Orientation was very helpful. Wish we had some of the information before we traveled. Would have packed different clothes. Transportation good. Paid attention to dietary request. Our 3 guides very friendly, helpful, and informative. Routeburn hike was so awesome. 3 days of hiking that was challenging. Lodges each night very accommodating. Hot shower. Dinner both nights very nice. Chicken and... More

Our hike was amazing and everything was near to perfect as one could expect. I would like to emphasize some points that may interest someone considering this hike. 1. Ultimate Hikes has a monopoly on the lodges along the Routeburn Track because these easements were purchased decades ago and now it's restricted. You can camp in the public huts operated... More

This is our 4th trip with Ultimate Hikes and our 2nd Classic Walk. Overall, the experience is fantastic. The company is very professional and always has the safety & comfort of the walker foremost. The scenery is spectacular. The first part is the Milford Track which is four days walking. First day is short after a boat ride on Lake... More

I did the day encounter on the Routeburn track. It was an amazing day hike and the guide was terrific, both very knowledgeable about the tracks but also an interesting person in general. I was also the only person so I actually got a private tour; I really appreciated that they didn't cancel the hike without more participants. If you... More

I booked the Routeburn Track 3 Day Hike. The staff were wonderful and very well organised. The lodges that we stayed in along the way were really nice and comfortable. The food was excellent. On days 2 and 3 they have a make your own sandwich bar, which was great. I didn't find the hike too hard but there were... More

From start to finish, the "Classic" walk (Milford and Routeburn) was just fantastic. All of our guides (4 for Milford for 44 people; 3 for Routeburn with 21 people) were energetic, knowledgeable and displayed outstanding judgement. The lodges were magic, food was wonderful and the walks...just stunning. A special shout out: One of our party fell on the way up... More
