Why choose us?


Ngāi Tahu has guiding roots that extend back to when our ancestors were guides for many of the first European explorers. Today we are proud to extend our manaakitanga (hospitality) by sharing with you our unique connection to the land and the stories it holds.

Personal Service

The Hollyford Track is a low-altitude walk along the valley floor, very achievable for those with a reasonable level of fitness. A huge benefit is that you only need carry your pack on the first day, after which we supply a small day pack which is more than enough for your daily needs.

Cosy accommodation

At the end of each day you arrive to a warm dry lodge, a hearty welcome from your lodge hosts and the enticing aroma of delicious cuisine and fine wines. Lodges include all bedding and linen supplied in twin-share rooms, shared bathroom facilities and plenty of hot water.
