Hike parts of 3 New Zealand Great Walks in 3 days!

This is our ultimate hiking package, where you walk through some of New Zealand’s most awe-inspiring and diverse landscapes. With Te Anau as base each evening, the package offers three days of fully guided Great Walk experiences on the best parts of the Milford, Routeburn and Kepler Tracks. Each of these premier walks showcases different sides of Fiordland, passing through spectacular scenery from native forests, lakes and rivers to mountain views, vast fiords and lush valleys.


Each day you will be accompanied by a local guide. Our guides are the backbone of our small, family run company. Friendly, patient and with a deep affinity for all things outdoors, our guides help bring Fiordland’s stunning landscapes to life, while providing a safe, enjoyable walk.

Day 1 Kepler Track Guided Heli-hike

This is a chance to experience a guided heli-hike on the Kepler Track. We begin with a spectacular flight by helicopter from Te Anau Township, over the hidden lakes to arrive at Luxmore Hut. The walk begins in the alpine tussock fields with mountain views, then descends through magnificent beech forest and under towering limestone bluffs, on a well-formed track. The effects of different altitude and weather conditions experienced in Fiordland are clear to see, as the trees and undergrowth quickly changes. We finish this hike at the sandy beach of Brod Bay, the pick-up point for the water taxi back to Te Anau township.

Day 2 Milford Track guided walk and boat cruise

Soak up the grandeur of a guided walk to Giant Gate Waterfall on the world-famous Milford Track.


From Milford Sound, we begin with a short boat ride to Sandfly Point. The walk meanders alongside the cascading Arthur River through lush rainforest to the Giant Gate Falls. This spectacular waterfall is best viewed from the large swing bridge spanning the river. There is much to see, from the ancient trees towering above, to the vibrant ferns and mosses, plus the array of birdlife inhabiting this lush environment.


On conclusion of the guided walk, you’ll complete the Milford Sound experience with a 2-hour scenic small boat cruise for the afternoon. With indoor and outdoor spaces on the boat, you can be sure you will get some great viewing opportunities including the geological drama of sheer cliffs, massive waterfalls, glaciers, rainforest, and Mitre Peak in all its grandeur.

Day 3 Routeburn Track, Key Summit Great Walk

We’ll take you on a guided walk to Key Summit on the renowned Routeburn Track Great Walk. This spectacular trail ascends through lush, temperate rainforest and onto the summit which is covered with a field of unique alpine herbs. Here on the summit, hikers experience panoramic views of snowy mountains, alpine lakes, and deep, glacier-carved, bush-clad valleys. Lunch is enjoyed here, or alongside Lake Howden.


Walking in a small group, you'll love learning about this stunning natural environment from your friendly Trips & Tramps guide.

Tour guides were of a very high level!

Very professional. Beautiful sights, especially rock cliff structure at Milford sound. The force of nature is amazing. Tour guides were of a very high level. Could engage in adult conversation with them. 1st day was with Jeff and Jill and they greeted us with a handshake. Very professional and fantastic local knowledge. 2nd and 3rd day  was with Doug who had fantastic knowledge on flora and bird life. I would encourage other families form Auckland to do this trip with Trips and Tramps as it is an eye opener with the beautiful scenery in Fiordland.

We are so glad to have booked with Trips and Tramps.

We thoroughly enjoyed all of our walks with you guys. Caitlin and Becs were well versed with loads of information about the tracks, the wildlife that we saw, the flora and fauna as well as just general things about New Zealand. They were incredibly friendly and made us feel at home with their hospitality. We enjoyed our conversations with them. 
They matched our pace and so none of the walks were taxing though we had an older adult with us. It feels like they went the extra mile to ensure that we were all having a good time. We particularly appreciated Becs for arranging our transport back on the second day as well as for being so flexible on our last day.

Lots of laughs and fun with friends

It was a great 3 day trip that we recently went on, organised by Jill.

Day one was the Kepler Track with guides Michelle and Taisei. Day two was the Milford Track with our guide Douglas and a 2hr boat cruise around Milford Sound. Day three we did the Key Summit walk on the Routeburn Track with Helen. Jill did an amazing job organizing all 3 days for Janine, Francis and I. 

Jill explained the itinerary for each day very well. There was also packed lunches for each day which were delicious. 

Thank you so much to all of our guides, as they explained to us about the trees, plants, birds and alot was said about each area that we walked. We are all lady’s from the South and  had a lot of laughs.

A perfect sampling of New Zealand's greatest walks

My grandson and I had a marvelous time on the 3 day trip and tramp on the Kepler, Milford and Routeburn Tracks. A perfect sampling of New Zealand’s greatest walks. Excellent  guides who were both personable and highly knowledgeable.  Also, very accessible pre trip for planning. The logistics were flawless. Magnificent views and sights. Highly recommend this company and this tour program.

We had a fabulous time doing the 3 tramps and it was way beyond our expectations.

We had a fabulous time doing the 3 tramps and it was way beyond our expectations. Thanks to Steve, Douglas, Taisei, Michelle and Geoff. Your passion for your tramping and your area of Fiordland is very obvious and we enjoyed learning so much from your knowledge.
Each tramp showed us something different and gave us a taste of the country that's for sure.

4 of the best days walking we have ever experienced ...

We've just completed 4 of the best days walking we have ever experienced with Trips and Tramps (Kepler Track, Milford Track, Routeburn Track & Lake Marian).  The service provided by Trips & Tramps was nothing short of exceptional from the initial enquiry back in Jan through to the service provided by the guides on the walks.  The office team (Madeleine) were prompt and extremely helpful through the booking process and follow up emails with clear and accurate information provided.  The guides during the walks (Andrew, Douglas, Michelle & Becs) were all experts in their fields and provided knowledgeable and interesting commentary during the walks.  The walks whilst challenging, were worth every ache and sore muscle with views from the top of Mt Luxmore, Lake Marian and Earland Falls the highlights for us.  We would highly recommend Trips and Tramps for anyone seeking a variety of walks in Fiordland.

Departure Point, and transport logistics


This trip uses the township of Te Anau as the base. With a wide range of shops, accommodation providers and plenty of dining options, it is the perfect place to step into Fiordland National Park. Most people find it easiest to fly into Queenstown. From there it is a 2-hour drive via State Highway 94 to reach Te Anau. From Queenstown you can rent a vehicle or catch the Tracknet bus. Tracknet have 3 departures daily, and we can organise this for you if required. It is also possible to access Te Anau via Invercargill or Dunedin, however you would need a car to get to Te Anau from these places. Once you are in Te Anau we will pick you up each day from your accommodation (if it is within the town boundaries, or on the Milford Highway), this includes private residences. Sorry we do not pick up from outside the township.


Accommodation


We recommend a minimum of 3 nights’ accommodation in Te Anau, but 4 nights is even better. Te Anau has plenty of accommodation options to suit every style and budget. Please note the cost of your accommodation, dinner and breakfast is not included in the package and should be arranged separately. Once again, let us know if you need any help with your selection, we are happy to share our local knowledge. We recommend you book your accommodation directly to receive the best available rate.


Health and Fitness


The Great Walks are well formed, with no drop-offs and the steeper places are either negotiated by steps or zigzags. The trip is suitable for most ages (8+ years) and abilities. The Kepler Heli Hike is the hardest day, due to the sustained downhill walking which can affect knees, and it is the day we usually cover the most distance (up to 16 km if you go all the way to the summit). The guide will manage each day to ensure the best possible experience, while making the most of the landscape, weather, and groups’ fitness levels. If you have a reasonable level of fitness you will find each day pleasantly challenging and highly rewarding. We recommend you are capable of walking for 4 hours on varied terrain, to get the most out of this package.
