Information

Time: 3 - 4 days, Distance: 60 km

The Kepler Track is another of Fiordland's iconic walks. A 60km round trip that takes 3-4 days but traveller feedback suggests that if you are fit it can be done in less. It involves a steep climb and fantastic alpine views on the tops. Enjoy.

If you are a bit worried about walking on your own, there are several guiding companies that offer great services.

Beautiful place to hike for 1/2 a day. Beginning on the Rainbow Bridge. Beware of sandflies.

Unfortunately I could not complete the loop because of bad weather but the part between the control gates and Luxmore Hut were worth the trip. The view from the top is absolutely wonderful, the track is well marked, the hut is quite comfortable. I just do not understand why we had to pay for a bed before we left Te Anau, as there is not guarantee of a bed on arrival.....

Great walk with great views of the lake on both sides. Take care in winter to be well equipped.

Delightful lakeside walk with breathtaking views of the snow capped mountains. Flat, easy and very accessible.

We made a day hike to Luxmore Hut! It was an amazing walk, just the times on the signs were not correct (we needed 3.5 hours instead of 6).
