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.

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).

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

Nice walk. The second day is the best, the only day you walk above the bushline (if camping at campsites).

Nice walk, a lot of it is in close rainforest though without any views. Quite steep, but worth every footstep when you reach the point where the treeline stops. No water (drinking) before Luxmore!
