The deep south of New Zealand is home to some of the country's most pristine and spectacular landscapes. Fiordland National Park (which includes the world renowned Milford Sound) and Stewart Island offer walkers the choice of an exceptional array of day hikes, which we feature during this superb week of walking. This trip begins in the 'adventure capital' Queenstown before travelling to Invercargill. Crossing over to Stewart Island you will enjoy some short walks as well as a free day to explore this remote island or even try to sight New Zealand's iconic flightless bird - the Kiwi. Returning to the mainland, travel to Te Anau for walks in Fiordland National Park before boarding a breathtaking helicopter flight over dramatic peaks into uninhabited Martins Bay, the heart of the Hollyford region. Enjoy a walk along the Hollyford Valley and a section of the Routeburn Track before heading back to Queenstown.
