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.

Really interesting. Good challenge, we could just do the first part because the hut was fully booked.

Well formed track, beautiful forest and views. Huts accommodate a lot of people but well designed not to feel too crowded.

Amazing landscape and very good campsite because of a real place to cook and clean and useful shelter. Campsite too expensive!

Just did a little part of the Kepler Track, pretty forest, nice views of the river, kind of exotic.

Go out and do it. Very nice views and funny evenings in the huts. We did it in 3 days start and end from in Te Anau. It is also possible to start/end in Rainbow Creek, the trek is a bit shorter then. But like every walk in NZ, well maintained and signed. Drinking water in every hut and the first day is the hardest!

Too expensive for the facilities in the huts, but absolutely worth it because of the hike.
