Walked through in a day, with a good level of fitness very achievable. With 12 hours of daylight you still have time to look around and take in the views. Finished at 3pm hitched a ride into Te Anau, plenty of traffic at that time....More

Tiring but worth every minute of it. Stunning scenery with several interesting plants and trees. Limited wild life though.

We didn't walk it all, but the first 20 mins was enough with small kids, they got to see small waterfalls & there are great views into the valley

When we did the track there were a few fit people that were doing it in a day, looked like a long day but as you say you are fit it is very do-able. The track itself is wide and well marked.
