Beat the crowds! Join our special water taxi departures at 11:30am and 2pm.
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.
If you’re already headed for Te Anau Downs and just require the last of your transport, we have you covered.
All of our transport packages include two water taxi rides (both at the start of the track and the end). We can also add to this a car relocation service and/or minibus transport. Or, if you’d prefer, just book your water taxis through us.
The choice is yours.

Milford Track Transport Package from Te Anau Downs, Return by Car (Car Relocation)
Your Great Walk adventure starts by driving to Te Anau Downs, in the comfort of your own car. You will then catch your pre-booked water taxi to Glade Wharf at 11:30am or 2pm. Join the 11:30am departure & beat the crowds.
As you walk the Milford Track, your car will be relocated, ready and waiting for you to complete your tramp.
Upon finishing your walk, you will be collected by water taxi and dropped off in Milford Sound. From there, you will drive your car to your next destination – Queenstown, Te Anau, Invercargill – the choice is yours.
A flat fee of $299 is added for each car that needs relocation – this must be booked in the ‘optional extras’ page during the booking process. If this is not selected, car relocation services will not be provided. Car relocation is booked based on your walk taking four days, should you wish to request another timeframe, please let us know.
Tickets for the water taxi are sold on a per-person basis – the total cost of your transport will be displayed on the next page.

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