Easyhike - Kepler Track
2018-05-21T21:17:41+12:00
Easyhike were 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. Diane E February 2018
Taking the water taxi from Te Anau lakefront, we started the trek from Brod Bay campsite. 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 town center, so we didn't have to wait for the shuttle bus, no hassle ! lannynatalia March 2018

KEPLER TRACK TOP TIPS

1. BOOK YOUR HUT TICKETS WELL IN ADVANCE

The Kepler Track is very popular and huts usually sell out well in advance. We recommend you plan your trip early so you can nab those ideal dates.

2. SAVE TIME WITH CAR RELOCATION AND WATER TAXI

The Kepler Track is a 4 day 60km Loop.  However there are access points along the way which mean you can save time and walk it over 2 or 3 days without missing any highlights.  See our transport package

3. WEAR COMFORTABLE FOOTWEAR

Do you need hiking boots to walk the Kepler Track?  It depends and comes down to personal choice.

Factors you should consider: Your hiking experience and fitness, how heavy your pack will be and how fast you are wanting to travel.

Either way, your feet need to be used to walking in your footwear – this helps to prevent blisters!  And no one wants blisters…



KEPLER TRACK LOGISTICS:

DISTANCE: 60km Loop track.  There are two access points so you can finish after 50.5 km’s if you wish – Transport required.

DURATION: You can choose.  Most people stay 2 or 3 nights on the track.

ACCOMMODATION: Department of Conservation huts (bunks and shared facilities).

DIRECTION: You can choose to walk either way. We suggest walking up to Luxmore hut to begin with. The views are incredible in both directions.

WHEN TO BOOK: Everything needs to be pre booked, and the track sells out very quickly – months and months in advance.  We start taking bookings very early in the year for the following season.

To tick off this beauty please contact us as soon as possible to have the best chance of choosing your ideal dates.

KEPLER TRACK – Further Information

Seeking awe-inspiring lake and mountain views? Don’t miss hiking the Kepler Track.

Designed to showcase the very best features of Fiordland, the Kepler Track was custom-built as an unforgettable hiking experience. With views from Mt Luxmore reach deep into the isolated mountains of Fiordland and limestone formations and waterfalls keep every step interesting, the Kepler Track is most definitely racing to join its older siblings as a ‘Must-Do’ New Zealand experience. Easy to follow, the construction of the Kepler Track makes for easier walking – think bridges, boardwalks and steps.

Native bird life on the Kepler Track is thriving. There’s a strong chance you’ll get to encounter the Kea bird – the world’s only native alpine parrot. They’re cheeky little guys who won’t hesitate to steal your bootlaces (or your snacks), so keep a close eye out!

Walking independently is the only option to complete the whole Kepler Track, and our packages or transport options make it incredibly easy to do this. We’ll take care of transport, food, hut bookings and gear, so you can really make the most out of your Kepler experience.

The Great Walk Season is open from late October until late April every summer.  If you are looking at walking this trail outside Great Walk Season, click here to find out more about walking in ‘winter’.
