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.

Difficult to enjoy at first - it is a long trip up. Woke up above the clouds. Awesome.

It was pouring with rain when our 4 day trek was scheduled and we did not feel like getting soaked since we only had the first night in the hut so we only hiked to the Luxmore Hut and stayed the night and came back down the next day. Exceptional location, views, Ranger Peter was awesome.

The mountain was amazing, but walking in the forest was okay.

We only walked the first of the track. At the beginning you do miss the views, you only walk in forest.

Another great walk with thousands of beautiful views of both of the lakes. Some parts were steep but it was really worth it to go there. Kea birds everywhere!!

Spectacular views, amazing experience with Kea birds. It is best to do it in three days and enjoy the whole track.

Did the track in two days, quite demanding but definitely doable. First day (in the mountains) was awesome, but the other one not so much - just a forest walk. Great, clean facilities.

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.
