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.

Well equipped huts, good facilities.
Well maintained trails, well sign marked, good parking.
Long walk but very scenic with lots of changes in vegetation.

All tracks were well maintained and marked.
Challenging track but great rewards!
The only camping map where each location is approved by every regional council in NZ. So if it shows on the map, you’re allowed to stay.

Small section walked. Pleasant, well maintained but treebound. Not enough viewing spots.
Rangers could provide more informative talk rather than hut housekeeping. Tramp itself was great.
Nice landscape and forest.
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.

Track was beautiful (esp Luxmore Hut to Iris Burn Hut); paths very well prepared and maintained, very friendly hut wardens. However, fee too high taking into account that you have to cook for yourself.
Easy access tramp from Te Anau. Don't need to use the water taxi if you join here (control gates/Rainbow Bridge).
