New Zealand, Photo of the Week

Photo of the Week – Milford Track

1 Comment 25 June 2010

Colorful Carpet - Milford Track New Zealand

The Milford Track (Kiwi speak for hike) is called the most beautiful hike in the world.  It received this accreditation when an English journalist walked it and wrote about her journey titling it “Milford Track, Possibly the Most Beautiful Walk in the World”. Her editor looked at it and crossed out the word “Possibly”. After that Frommers, Lonely Planet, Rough Guides as well as many marketing brochures has used the quote to describe it.

I hiked this 3 day 32 mile trek in November of 2006; certainly one of the most beautiful walks in the world!  Waterfalls and colorful landscapes surrounded us making one feel that they had been transported to another world.

    Enjoyed the blow by blow. My husband and I are planning a trip to New Zealand and have been debating on which tracks to do with guides and which to do on freedom walks. Your adventure will help us decide.
