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.

Took water taxi across lake and walked back to Te Anau. A most interesting walk.

Rangers could provide more informative talk rather than hut housekeeping. Tramp itself was great.

Unfortunately with very bad weather, should be great when it is dry and sunny.

Rainbow Reach to Lake Manapouri. We turned off by chance at one of the Kepler Track signs between Manapouri and Te Anau and we had a lovely 1.5 hour walk over the Rainbown Reach Bridge to Lake Manapouri then returned. The track is well maintained and easy with beautiful scenery and forest on the way.
