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.
