We are heading out for the first of our two long walks. The first on the Milford track, from Lake Te Anau to Milford Sound, will take four days to travel about 50 kms.
The brochure says to expect rain one day but it looks like we hit the jackpot and may get wet three days. Then the weather should be “mainly fine” during the five days on the Routeburn track. We bought all our food and will drop half at the start of the walk. I won’t be writing about these meals.
