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.

Don't miss this one if you can avoid it. The first day up the Luxmore is the hardest by a good deal and well worth it to get quickly above the bush line. Its a tougher track than the Routeburn so moderate fitness is required.

Superb views with good weather. Challenging but not too hard hike. Well maintained walking track. Always changing nature makes it very interesting pass though.

Magnificent track, 4 days of totally different scenery. From nice surroundings to beech forests. Absolutely stunning.

Campsites expensive but for a Great Walk normal. Toilets not clean and full, drinking water was not drinkable. Track was awesome, minus because of the campsites.

Two camping grounds which means a hard and long 2nd day, the first one was beautiful but the toilets were full, lots of sandflies on the 2nd, the track was nice (over the clouds) but obviously 'planned'.

Really nice track, nice view of the Te Anau Lake (hut was beautiful), but full of tourists and for me too expensive ($54 night).

Too much expense for this trek. There is a better trek for free.

Great walk but huts are too expensive and it is three days of bush forest and only one day on mountain.
