Kepler Track Great Walk
Private Kepler Track Guided Walk
Easy Hiking alongside Lake Te Anau
Step out onto the picturesque forest of the Kepler Track, a New Zealand Great Walk with a half-day private guided hike. This is a wonderful opportunity to enlist the experience and knowledge of a private guide who knows the area and can ensure a seamless introduction to Fiordland National Park.
Choose either a morning or afternoon option to suit your travel itinerary. A local, knowledgeable guide will meet you at your Te Anau accommodation and ensure you have the right clothing before transporting you to the water taxi, which we use to access the Kepler Track.
This easy-going hike alongside the beautiful Lake Te Anau through the beech forest and ferns is suitable for everyone, and your private guide will ensure you get the most out of your time on the trail. This is a great option for families! Learn all you wish to know about the native fauna and flora of the Kepler Track, spot the birds, and at the right time of year identify the native orchids or abundant fungi. Without the distraction of others, you will have the guide’s full attention and get to understand so much more. Having a private guide gives you a value-added experience!
On the edge of the National Park and start/finish of the Kepler Track you will be met by a private vehicle to transport you back to your Te Anau accommodation to conclude your personal experience.
