We enjoyed our walk here. It was less crowded than some other DOC walks but definitely worth it to visit. Good views and a well maintained track!

Our first track with many marvellous places. Landscape is changing every 30 minutes and lovely historical hut was great.

Great three day track. Beautiful scenery and huts. Christopher's Hut was my favourite. Our first track in New Zealand.

A very long way but halfway you get to sit on your own, private hot spring pool in the absolute middle of nowhere. Extremely recommend! Beautiful!

Really nice walk, easy to do, but nothing special - huts are nice and clean but crowded. Cannot be booked in advance.

Too easy and almost the same way. But beautiful, no doubt about that! Nice huts and facilities.
