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.

First half of the track was uncomparible to the second one. Mountain part was really variable and really awesome (10 out of 10).

Compared to the other Great Walks was more enduring but we were not complaining, because the views compensate!

The track from Kepler Track carpark to Luxmore Hut wind nicely through impressive rainforest up to 1000m, from where you can have a nice view of the surroundings. With its 27km distance you should have some endurance. Especially worth if no clouds are present.

Did all the track in three days with a tent. What a challenge but worth it so much! Freedom all around you and panoramic views all along the track! Great wildlife also! Blue Ducks and Kea. Stunning!

Amazing forest next to the coast and a beautiful three day walk. Magical. There are different options you can choose.

Little expensive for the huts on popular hikes but it for the walk quality.

An incredible adventure along the windy ridge and down through the greenest forest I have ever seen! My favourite Great Walk and possible in two nights.

Nice forested area past the river and lake where you can walk an adventurous five day walk or a couple of hours.

Real great experience, very well maintained site. It was tough but the landscape (under the sun) made it worth it!

Really interesting. Good challenge, we could just do the first part because the hut was fully booked.
