Kepler Track, Te Anau

(4.8/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Kepler Track allows visitors to trek from the beech-forest shores of lakes Te Anau and Manapouri to the very top of Mt. Luxmore. Traverse rocky mountain ridges, wander through tall mossy forests, and cross deep gorges and fast-flowing rivers on swinging suspension bridges. Explore the region's caves, featuring finger-like stalactites and stalagmites, or take a brisk dip in an icy waterfall. Well-constructed bridges, boardwalks, and steps make for a moderately difficult 60 km (37 mi) walk, usually done in two to four days. Each night, enjoy the comfort of running water and a roof over your head at the trail-side huts. Visit during the optimal season between October and April, and book your hut accommodations in advance. Plan to see Kepler Track and other attractions that appeal to you using our Te Anau vacation generator.

  • The day on the tops was my best walk ever, and we were lucky to get good weather on that day as it could be miserable if not. The huts were great too. 
  • don't do it! We were with little time stopping in Te Anau, at a campsite but we did the first part of the track and it was fun.
