Kepler Track Easyhike

KEPLER TRACK

THE KEPLER TRACK

An ‘adventure above the clouds’, the Kepler Track was created for your outdoor pleasure and to showcase the very best of Fiordland.

A circular 60km loop track set in the mountains above Lakes Te Anau and Manapouri in Te Wahipounamu – South West New Zealand World Heritage Area, the Kepler Track was custom built as an unforgettable hiking experience. With views from Mt Luxmore reaching deep into the mountains of Fiordland, tussock covered ridgelines, waterfalls, lush forests and limestone formations keeping every step interesting, the Kepler Track would have to be one of New Zealand’s most accessible Great Walks at only 5km from the township of Te Anau.

The native birdlife on the Kepler Track is thriving and there’s a strong chance that you’ll get to encounter the Kea – the world’s only native alpine parrot. Their cheeky and inquisitive nature means they won’t hesitate to steal your snacks (or your bootlaces!).

Easy to follow with bridges, boardwalks and steps, walking the Kepler Track is a pleasure. Hiking independently (un-guided) is the only option to complete the whole track a very ‘kiwi’ experience and our hiking packages and transport options make this incredibly easy. It means you can enjoy a more personal experience, and at your own pace, that’s fully on your terms.

What are people saying?

  • Taking the water taxi from Te Anau lakefront, we started the trek from Brod Bay campsite. The 2nd day from Luxmore to Iris Burn was particularly awesome. The path to Luxmore summit was very windy, but we had almost zero wind after that, views were excellent especially on the ridges between 2 emergency shelters. Finished the trek at Rainbow Reach, lucky we hired Easyhike to move our car there from the town center, so we didn't have to wait for the shuttle bus, no hassle!
  • Easyhike was an amazing company to deal with. From the first phone call, they were helpful and informative. They kept in touch leading up to our Kepler track start date and all their instructions were clear and easy to follow. It was fantastic to have our car waiting for us at the end of our four-day tramp.
