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.

Very challenging and rewarding, once you pass the treeline the views are beyond amazing. The huts provide the warmth and comfort you need to rest your aching legs.

It was planned as a three day trip, but we did it in two days. Easier than we thought.

Wonderful track with heaps of various terrains. The only downside was the fact there was only one campsite and the huts were fully booked - a lot of walking for us!! Awesome views though.

Beautiful, varied scenery throughout. We got lucky with the weather, especially during the alpine section. Track was easy to follow and not too crowded, huts were well maintained. Great experience!!

The path was well maintained with water and toilets along the way. The huts and hut rangers were lovely and we enjoyed staying there. The hike was strenuous but the view was worth it.

The scenery was absolutely lovely. The first great walk we did and it was a good decision. It was worth climbing up the hill for the spectacular view!! We saw a lot of Kea.

I saw sunrise from the summit and met Kea parrots which did want to follow me. A really interesting experience!
