Milford Track Transport from Te Anau

Book our special new departures from Te Anau at 11am or 1:25pm. Choose 11am to meet the boat departing Te Anau Downs at 11:30am!! 

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.

However you would like to travel to the start of the Milford Track from Te Anau, we have you covered.

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 or a car relocation service, providing you with an all-inclusive transport solution.

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.
