Milford, Milford, Milford. How will words do you justice? I'm not sure they can, but I'll try my best.
New Zealand has nine so-called Great Walks, all of which are multiple-day hikes through the country's finest wilderness. The Milford Track is one of them, although I must say "great" is a bit of an understatement as this hike is often referred to as one of the WORLD's most scenic and all-around best hikes - which also means it is quite popular. In fact, we reserved our place on the trail in August 2015! It was well worth the wait as this hike was, I kid you not, the absolute most gorgeous scenery I have ever seen on Earth. Ever.
