We Provide

A professional private hiking guide, all transport from Te Anau on a private basis, safety gear, hot drinks, picnic lunch, including reusable water bottle and snacks.


A reasonable level of fitness and waling ability is required due to the 400-metre ascent and descent.  The walk is 7-10 km, with a walking time of 3 to 5 hours.  The track is well graded and wide, with no drop offs.  On occasion, wet weather and cold conditions in the alpine area may make conditions more challenging.  We operate in most weather conditions, but when traveling on a private trip we can modify the day to meet your motivations.
