Stunningly Beautiful Day Hike from Te Anau

A smooth trail, gorgeous vistas of lake and mountains, and a greener than green forest with delicate bird song. Track as much or little as you want. The info stations ℹ️in town... read more

A smooth trail, gorgeous vistas of lake and mountains, and a greener than green forest with delicate bird song. Track as much or little as you want. The info stations ℹ️in town have an excellent Conservation pamphlet. You can hike in either direction from one of several parking spots. This was a highlight of our five week trip.

We absolutely loved our four day Kepler Track hike, despite it raining most of it! The tracks are exceptionally well marked with great facilities including shelters and toilets along the way. The huts can be a little crowded, but clean with cooking facilities, flushing toilets and a 'wash room' where you can freshen up with a cold water basin. We... More

Lovely and well maintained walking track with some spectacular views on day 2 from the ridges. We were lucky enough to have snow falling!

Luxmore hut has a spectacular location and amazing views. worth the climb. The last hut (Motorau) has a completely different location on the lake! we... More

We did the Kepler in 3 days travelling anti-clockwise staying at the Luxmore Hut and then the Iris Burn Campsite. All days were challenging in their own ways but the views were most definitely worth it. Especially on the 2nd day - just wow!

We only managed part of the trail and were able to hike for 3 hours. This part was easy and wooded. The more challenging parts we just did not have time. I would have loved to do all of it. Yes, do it!

People warned us about the first day being a steady climb and they were telling the truth. Not overly steep but just constant climb. Most find day 2 hardest as climb more before the hard on feet tramp back down to stay by the river. Bush changes over the 4 days from beech forest to alpine plants back to beech... More

Did this track at the end of October and loved every minute. First day from Te Anau is a solid steady climb (1000m+) but oh so worth it when you pop out of the tree line and are rewarded with spectacular lake and mountain views. Luxmore hut has the same awesome views and is well specced. The cave is a... More
