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!
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.
