Great Walk

If you want to do three days or half an hour this track has everything. Especially the first 30kms or so from Te Anau.

Our group of nine took three nights to complete the dramatic Kepler track. Starting with a quick ferry across to Brod Bay we did the steady climb to Luxmore Hut in 3.5hours. The second day was a challenge up and across incredible eye-popping landscapes into beach forrest and a long downhill grind. Had the weather been bad this would have... More

Just do it! One of the best tracks I have done in NZ and I am a regular tramper. Very smooth well maintained surface on track. Wonderful moss covered beech forest. Amazing views on day 2 along the ridge. We even got rainbows. Luxmore hut is fantastic. Moturau hut in beautiful spot next to Lake Manapouri. A must to stay... More

This is a great Great Walk. We had good weather and the views from the ridges are amazing. The huts are well equipped and we met some really interesting people. The whole experience was wonderful

We just walked from the Rainbow entrance to the lake. Cool suspension bridge, but a bit ho-hum hiking, though we're spoiled by great hiking in Washington State. Nothing wrong with it...just expected more sights along the way.

This is one of the Best "Great Walks" in New Zealand, a 60km loop track, spectacular views, a real mix of terrain (and possible weather conditions). I could easily repeat this track as it is absolutely so enjoyable, we actually did this in November 2011 but the website won't allow me to input that date. If you can't choose which... More

We went on Luxmore Jets across Lake Manapouri to a beach from where we had a guided walk with Shirley, who was able to tell us all about interesting features on the track through open beech forest. For us it was very interesting as we are used to North Island forests. We had time for photos and a cup of... More

We visited Kepler in the end of February with my friends and we had a lot of fun. The waether there is pretty tricky and beside the bad forecast we were really lucky! First day was sunny and warm and when we got up out of the forest it was just amazing view! Second day was raining a bit but... More

After 6 hours of treking we had to get out as the weather was dreadful and they feared avalanches on the track. The other major trakes had also been closed, many landslides. But what we saw was pritty and not very difficult especailly for me (60 and not very fit)

The track is outstanding. Beautifully groomed and in pristine condition. The huts are very clean and there are a couple of areas where you can camp. It is sign posted very well and gives you realistic times together with having a different time for fitter walkers.
