Discover the Beauty of Fiordland & Beyond with Unforgettable Personal Scenic Flights

Hollyford Track

Flight and bus packages for tramping the Hollyford track

The Hollyford Track is a 56km 5 day Fiordland walk from the Hollyford road end at Gunns camp to the sea at Martins Bay.

It is possible to walk in and out if you have 8-10 days or alternately you can fly in or out. 

There is also the possibility to book a jetboat with Hollyford Guided Walks,

In all cases we seriously recommend spending a night at Martins Bay, it is the highlight of the walk and too many people miss this awesome place as they rush off up the valley.

Enquire direct for family specials and children prices.

Further Information

We are currently only taking bookings through to March 31st 2023. This is due to the Labour Government pushing to close Milford Airport for fixed wing aircraft to make room for a bus park. Further information can be found here,

Hollyford track packages are available to book Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Outside these dates we can only take reservations for a group of 4 or more subject to availability.

If you do not intend to fly and only want the bus try Trips and Tramps or Tracknet.

The times are variable due weather and road conditions.

Children are half price but we do occasionally carry children for free on a space available basis if minimum numbers are met. 

You can add Big Bay on for a flat fee of $95, for 1-5 passengers. It is low tide dependent. Check low tide here.

For the ultra hard, add on a flight to Cascade, a flat additional fee of $550 applies, 1-4 passengers or 5 passengers if 2 are children. This airstrip requires permission from the owner which will take some time to organise.
