Great Walks was invited along to experience the launch of Life's an Adventure's five-day Fiordland Walks of New Zealand experience.
The guys at LAA have consulted with local guides and operators to build the perfect taster tour where hikers experience rainforest hiking on the Milford Track, summit mountains on the Kepler Track, with the added thrill of a heli-hike where LAA hikers are choppered into the Luxmore Hut to embark on a rewarding hike to the summit of Mt Luxmore.
Within the taster tour, LAA guests experience the Milford Sound on a boutique overnight boat cruise abroad the Milford Mariner where guests enjoy a generous buffet and local wines.
Inclusions within this tour offer hikers multiple speed boat excursions between hiking track departure and ending points, luxury accommodation and of course local wines to accompany the five-star three course meals LAA guests enjoy at the Fiordland Lounge, where hot-tubs are awaiting to sooth tired feet.

LAA guests will come away from this tour feeling challenged, refreshed and well informed by LAA's local Kiwi guide Bard, who has an encyclopaedic knowledge of local fauna and flora and is a member of the local Maori tribe.
