Bus transport & car relocation

Routeburn Track Transport

The Routeburn Track is a 2-3 day hike starting at either The Divide (off the Milford road) or the Routeburn Shelter (near Glenorchy) and walked in either direction.

Getting to the Routeburn Track is one thing, but you'll also need to make sure you've arranged your transport back. Transport packages for the Routeburn Track include a bus service or vehicle relocation.

The bus service operates between either end of the track connecting you with Queenstown or Te Anau throughout the Great Walks season.

Travelling in a private vehicle or rental? A vehicle relocation service is the easiest way to get your car to the finishing point. After a three-day hike, seeing your vehicle waiting for you will be a welcome sight.
