The Dusky Track is one of the most challenging walks in New Zealand. If you want to tackle the Dusky then get prepared for mud, sandflies and some of the best wilderness walking on the planet.

More of a challenge than an enjoyable experience. With good weather it's merely difficult but I'd hate to attempt it after a bit of rain. Lots of pretty tarns and you definitely feel removed from civilisation. A good level of fitness and immunity to blisters is recommended

6 day track. Truly a challenging tramp. DOC brochure is good. I felt DOC staff in Te Anau were talking me out of it. I do not understand why Lake Hauroko Tours has better info than DOC.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
