Walk across the longest swingbridge in Fiordland



The Hollyford Track is a 4–8 day Fiordland tramp from the mountains to the sea at Martins Bay, and can be walked all year round.

The February 2020 storm damage has been repaired enough to allow the safe opening of the track. However, only for people with moderate to high level backcountry and remote areas skills and experience.

The Hollyford Track is a great 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.
