So, it seems that booking huts 6 months in advance is still not long enough to get a spot at the huts on the Milford Track. We are visiting NZ the first three weeks in January and there are no huts available. As there is no camping allowed on the track, is there ANY other way of doing this track without sleeping in huts? It seems that the next available date is well into February and we will be long gone by then.
Planning for this trip is proving to be the most frustrating experience, and I'm an experienced traveler.
Thank you for any help and suggestions.
