Itinerary details

Your pass is divided into the following 'legs'. You can book travel in either direction (i.e. follow the itinerary from top to bottom, or bottom to top). You can also stop as often as you like along the way on each leg (for example, on the Franz Josef to Queenstown leg you can book from Franz Josef to Makaroa, Makaroa to Wanaka and Wanaka to Queenstown).

IMPORTANT: Milford Sound cruises are shown as 'extras' on the bus services  for these tours. You must select and add these extras to your cart in order to book them. You can also add other extras (like meals) to your tour in the same way. At the checkout we'll book the trip on your pass and you can pay for any extras that aren't included in your pass.

When booking tours you must book to and from the stops shown. View our TravelPass tours page for more information.
