Routeburn Track Transport from Queenstown & Glenorchy

One of only ten Great Walks in Aotearoa New Zealand, the Routeburn Track is a stunning tramp.  Crossing both Mount Aspiring National Park and Fiordland National Park, this is a hike that needs to be seen to be believed.

During the course of your 2-4 day walk, you can expect to weave your way through meadows and alpine gardens, whilst enjoying the reflection of tarns and views of massive mountains and valleys.

At 33km one way, this is not a loop track.  This means that you’ll need a transport solution to help you get to and from the trail – something that we’re pleased to be able to help with.

Cheeky Kiwi – The Best!

My husband and I used Cheeky Kiwi for our transportation to and from the Milford Track from Queenstown. We had an amazing experience!

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.

Not only do we transport our guests in luxurious fully-guided minibuses but we go out of our way to ensure all of the little details are considered. Our transport includes professional commentary and lots of local tips, making our transfers so much more than just a transport solution.
