The Hollyford trail was a true gem, not a tourist hot spot and such wonderful and diverse environments are encountered. If you're looking for something a little different in your hikes I highly reccomend this trail. The guides were fantastic, the food and service impeccable.

Kia ora Kate T Thanks so much for taking the time to place a review on your Hollyford experience, we're thrilled to hear you had a great trip. We like to think of the Hollyford as a bit of an 'unofficial' great walk (without the crowds!) so it's always nice to hear one of our guests share that sentiment! We're very lucky to be able to guide in an area that offers so much history within such a remote landscape. Thanks again for your lovely review and recommendation, we'd love to see you back in the valley some day. Ngā mihi Lucy
