It was a lovely and relaxing walk. We didn't go too far, only 45 minutes to and back, but it was a good distance for our four-year-old to see a beautiful forest covered with soft green moss. We walked down to the lake and spent...More

Beautiful ridge hike! We boated in from Te Anau to broad bay and hiked to iris burn and went back the same way (2 days 1 night). Because of the schizophrenic weather we opted to do the ridge twice just in case the weather was...More

As expected for a Great Walk, it was hard. We packed carefully but our rucksacks weighed 13kg. The walk to Luxmore hut, in the rain was a steady slog uphill through beautiful forest, past towering limestone bluffs and finally across alpine tussock moorland. Luxmore hut...More

We did a short part of the Kepler track and didn't enjoy it. This way it was boring. I wouldn't advice people to do only this part of the track. Maybe on the other way it's better

No sure there is a guided tour. Not needed anyway. A reasonable level of fitness is still required for this hike. But the tracks are superb. Head to the Luxmore hut for your first night, be prepared for 3-4 hour climb... More
