Planning a hike in New Zealand? Then make sure you consider doing the Hollyford Track in the South Island.
The Hollyford Track is unusual among Fiordland's major tracks as it's largely flat and accessible year-round.
There are two ways to walk it, as an independent walker (the loop walk via the Demon Trail will take over a week) staying at the well-made DOC (Dept of Conservation) huts or doing the three-day Hollyford Track guided wilderness experience with Ngai Tahu Tourism, owned and run by the South Island's main Maori tribal group, Ngai Tahu, and staying in comfortable private huts.
Whichever way you walk the Hollyford, it's certainly one you'll remember for a long time.
