Did this track in Feb 2016 and bloody loved it. I choose to do it in three days but in hindsight would next time take the four days.

when it says this track is used heavily it sure is popular which makes booking essential but the beauty is you are on it with 40 or less people at a time.

I walked solo and had no-one near me through the day, but if you want company you can easily have it.

I based in TE Anau and drove up into MIlford sound two days before to have a good look around. Glad I did as I got in on the last day and it was getting dark.

This walk is beautiful and so is getting to and out of it. You won't ever regret it.

The track is safe and easy so you can Definatly do it solo and don't need to be guided.

The huts are second to none and are equipped with bed mats, gas for cooking, heating and water for washing up.
