Multi Day Packages
Fiordland Great Walk Package
Hike 3 New Zealand Great Walks in 3 days!
Take a hike through some of New Zealand’s most awe-inspiring and diverse landscapes on the ultimate walking package. Base yourself in Fiordland for a fully guided 3 day Great Walk experience on the Milford, Routeburn and Kepler Tracks. These premier walks pass through unique and spectacular scenery, from native forests, lakes and rivers to mountain views, vast fiords and lush valleys.
Day 1 Kepler Track Guided Heli-hike
Experience a guided heli-hike on the Kepler Track. 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 area then descends through magnificent beech forest. The effects of different altitude and weather conditions experienced in Fiordland are clear to see, as the trees and undergrowth quickly changes, creating a varied backdrop for your hike. We conclude the 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's Gate Falls on the world-famous Milford Track. Departing 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 Giant's 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, complete the Milford Sound experience with an afternoon Scenic Boat Cruise 1 hour 45 minutes in length. With purpose-built observation lounges and large decks, you can be sure you’ll get some great viewing opportunities including the geological drama of sheer cliffs, massive waterfalls, glaciers and rainforest.
Day 3 Routeburn Track, Key Summit Great Walk
Enjoy a guided walk to Key Summit on the renowned Routeburn Track Great Walk. This spectacular trail ascends through lush, temperate rainforest and onto a unique alpine herb field. On the summit, hikers experience panoramic views of mountains, alpine lakes, and deep, glacial carved bush clad valleys. Walking in a small group, you'll love learning about this stunning natural environment from your friendly Trips & Tramps guide.
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.
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.
“Outstanding Company!..They were prompt, well prepared, friendly and fully knowledgeable of the area.”
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.
Thank you for our wonderful holiday.
"Thank you for our wonderful holiday. June and I LOVED the helicopter ride today and the walk down the Kepler was wonderful."
