Easyhike Hiking Packages


Easyhike is a fantastic option for a multi day independent hike with all of the time-consuming logistics taken care of. Well-maintained and easy to follow, hiking the Routeburn or Milford Track independently is a popular, quintessentially kiwi choice – it means you can enjoy a more personal experience that’s fully on your terms. 

From having your vehicle re-located from one end of the track to the other so it’s waiting for you when you finish your hike, to providing all of the hiking gear and food you will need and organising your Department of Conservation hut bookings. Easyhike offers high-quality packages to make organising your Routeburn or Milford Track hike a breeze.

Our Reviews

Stayed here for our beautiful friends wedding (the wedding guests all stayed here). It was simply awesome! The rooms are beautiful, everything has been thought out fantastically. This accomodation has a great story, and I hope to stay at more places like this in future.
