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.

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.

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).

Walk from Broad Bay to Luxmore and back to Te Anau. The walk is mostly in the forest.

I did a one day non guided walk from the Lakeside to Mt Luxmore and back. Great mix of forest walk and mountains.

Excellent scenery, excellent hut wardens, excellent visitor centres and staff. Hut kitchen and dining areas too small.
