A tramp from the mountains to the sea
The Hollyford Track is a fantastic tramping adventure for those who like to be a little off the beaten track, but still have a good track and huts to stay in.
Beginning among the sheer rock walls of the Darran Mountains in Fiordland National Park, the track follows the Hollyford River/Whakatipu Kā Tuka on its journey to the sea at Martins Bay, on the wild West Coast.
With no alpine sections this track is rarely cut off by snow so you can tramp it in any season (depending on weather).
The first part of the track offers a great overnight option for families or those with limited time.
