One of only ten Great Walks in New Zealand, the Milford Track is perhaps the most famous of them all.
The track traverses some of the most beautiful scenery in Fiordland, making it a bucket list adventure for many.
A number of strategically placed Department of Conservation huts can be found right across the Milford Track. Please be sure to book these separately from your track transport.

All of our transport packages include two water taxi rides (both at the start of the track and the end). These are combined with comfortable minibus transport, a car relocation service and/or a scenic flight, providing you with an all-inclusive transport solution.

Cheeky Kiwi – The Best!
The times and pickup/drop-off locations were convenient and punctual, and the rides themselves were like their own mini-tours, which is such a bonus! Our drivers (Dave and Kreig) were super knowledgable about all the areas we were driving through, and gave us great insights and tips on the Milford Track and other tramps in the area. They even stopped at lookout points for photos along the way and still kept us on time. We would absolutely book with them again, and recommend them to anyone looking for a great value!
Planning Your Great Walk
Prebook Your Transport and Accommodation
All accommodation on the Great Walks must be prebooked during the season – we ask you to do this before booking your track transport through us.
Transport also needs to be booked in advance, so once you have your huts locked in, make us your next stop.
Download the Great Hikes App
To help you plan your tramp, we recommend downloading the Great Hikes app. This is free to download and use and, in our opinion, is indispensable on the trail.
It works well offline and makes use of GPS to let you know exactly where you are on your hike. It helps you to plan your day (and your breaks) and allows you to check your progress in order to meet your transport at the other end.
The Cheeky Kiwi Travel Difference
When you’re talking on a Great Walk, you deserve the very best experience from start to end – that’s why you’ll want to book with us.

Our Milford Track transport packages also include tickets for two seperate water taxis. These are essential to get you to and from the tramp.
