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.

Just did the first part of it (beautiful rainforest!), but everyone who has done the whole thing have loved it. A lovely track (and not too demanding for all levels!).

Hard work the first day up Mount Luxmor, but worth it for the magic views. Well formed track so good for not so experienced, but reasonable level of fitness needed. Circular track, so convenient.

Do lots of research before you come. Take advice from those who know. Be prepared to ask questions and ask for help. N. Zealanders are very helpful and friendly. Need lots of bugspray. Sandflies are evil, especially when chilling out on beaches on the West Coast such as Gillespies Beach

Great South Alpine track, 3 day walk. Good level of fitness necessary, beautiful way to experience the Fiordland in a special, unforgettable way, be aware of a huge amount of sandflies.
