We made our reservations for this track 8 months in advance (Milford Track was already unavailable for the dates we wanted in January). I was really pleased with the track in terms of difficulty, facilities, and of course the great travelers you meet along the way! The track is a 60 KM loop. When they say you can experience all...

We parked at the Kepler car park and walked from there to Brod Bay for a day hike. Long, flat forest trail that hugs the lakeshore but within the trees - filled with soft moss in the dappled sunlight, all sorts of mushrooms and loud birdsong. Felt like I was walking in the world of Princess Mononoke, magical! Cool to... More

Due to time , we got a helicopter ride to Luxmore Hut. We were able to hike down the ridge into the forest and onto Brod Bay ( pack your insect repellent for the beach, otherwise you are free lunch for the local sandflies ) The views over lake Te Anau and Manapouri are stunning, and the hike down to...

A great walk for fine weather. Very exposed on day two. A great mix of bush and alpine. the huts are very comfortable.

Even if you don't have time to cover the whole track (takes a few days) there is still an opportunity to enjoy a small chunk of this gorgeous trail. We did the Rainbow Ridge hike - took a couple hours return. The trail is in great condition except for one detour early on where some erosion is preventing crossing a... More

I really wanted to do the whole Kepler track, but unfortunately, the weather forecast is what is is in may... Anyway, me and my travelmatez decided to do a quick version of it, so that we could say "yes, we were there", and managed to go to Luxmore hut and back to car park in 6hrs, yes, 28 km... well,...

Walked for a whole day from each of the alternate ends of the Kepler. Great walks up and then back down. A lot easier obviously with day packs. From the Te Anua lake it was quite a hike up hill - but achievable if you take your time.

I have walked the Kepler Track in parts intermittently, not the whole track at one time yet, however, I never fail to enjoy the experience. My most recent time was helicoptering up to Mt Luxmore Hut with five friends on a day trip. We summited Mt Luxmore then ambled our way down over the rest of the day, connecting with... More

We spent over 4 days to finish the Kepler track 60km. It was great experience especially on the second day on top of Mt.Luxmore. Amazing!!
