Embark on an extraordinary adventure with our guided day walk starting from Te Anau! Begin your journey with a breathtaking helicopter flight over the Hidden Lakes, beech forests, and alpine terrain, landing at the iconic Luxmore Hut on the Kepler Track, a New Zealand Great Walk.

From Luxmore Hut, immerse yourself in the alpine tussock fields while soaking in panoramic views of the majestic Fiordland mountains. For the more adventurous, there's an option to ascend towards Mt Luxmore for an even more spectacular perspective.

As you explore the alpine area, your experienced Trips & Tramps guide will share fascinating insights into the natural and human heritage of Fiordland. The well-formed Kepler Track then leads you on a scenic descent through mountain and silver beech forests, passing under towering limestone bluffs.

Your journey concludes at the tranquil sandy beach of Brod Bay, where a water taxi trip awaits to whisk you back to Te Anau. With small groups and a local guide, there's ample opportunity to capture stunning photographs, indulge in bird-watching, and delve into interpretive stops along the way.

This exhilarating day walk is designed for those with a medium-high level of fitness, offering an unforgettable experience in one of New Zealand's most captivating landscapes. Don't miss your chance to discover the wonders of Fiordland with us!

We recommend the Kepler Heli Hike only be included in active travel itineraries with other hiking and physical activities. Due to the mostly downhill walking (minimum 8 km 2-3 hours), knees and joints are put under pressure for a sustained period. This trip is not recommended for people over the age of 70 years and you need to ensure you have suitable outdoor hiking clothing and shoes.
