Hollyford Valley 2 Day Walk
Including scenic flight and jet boat. Extra days available
Grade: Easy to Moderate

We meet at Gunn's Camp in the Hollyford Valley for pre-walk talk and glowworm viewing. Following morning we take a scenic flight to Martins Bay. A quick side trip to Long Reef on the West Coast for the opportunity to view seals & penguins (weather permitting).
Our walk begins heading up the Hollyford Valley, lunching on the shores of Lake McKerrow and visiting Jamestown [settler’s proposed South Island capital] before enjoying a hearty evening meal and comfortable lodgings at the newly built Hokuri Hut.

Early the next day we take a thrilling jet boat ride along Lake McKerrow and up the Hollyford River to Pyke Lodge. From here we walk to Lake Alabaster for morning tea and then continue up the Hollyford Valley to Hidden Falls via Little Homer Falls/Saddle. We have a relaxing lunch at Hidden Falls before continuing out to Gunn’s Camp mid to late afternoon.
