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.

AMAZING hiking experience, and well worth every cent. I tented at Iris Burn and Brod bay to keep costs down, thereby doing the track in only 2 nights. My one complaint is how expensive the huts are, and how few places there are for campers. We felt rushed through the alpine section sine we could not tent at Luxmore!

The track is very well conditioned and the alpine section is great, but twoo many kilometres inside the bush.

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