The Finest Walk in the World.
That’s the tag line inevitably associated with the Milford Track on the South Island of New Zealand. It’s almost always wrongly attributed to Kiwi Poet Blanche Baughan. Her original title â€” A Notable Walk â€” was changed by an editor when printed in the London Spectator, 1908.
Serious hikers often make the Milford pilgrimage so they can legitimately rank it below more favourite treks.
In reality, Milford is a wonderful hike. Lakes, crystalline rivers, huge waterfalls, kooky birdlife, rainforest, and, of course, arriving at fantastic Milford Sound.
