The Divide to Milford Sound

Hey there

My wife and I are planning our NZ trip for 2024 and need some help with the Routeburn Track...

We are planning on hiking from the Routeburn Shelter to The Divide. From there we would like to do a day trip to the Milford Sound. Does anyone know of bus companies or taxis that would pick us up at The Divide and drop us off at the Milford Sound?

Many thanks.

I assume you have booked the Routburn huts? Is your 2nd night at Lake McKenzie? You are looking at around 5 hr walking to The Divide which makes it difficult as most of the buses pass through The Divide before 11:30 am. When I did it, we were able to stay our 3rd night at Howden Hut & it was an easy walk out to catch the bus to Milford Sound.
