About the Kepler Track
The Kepler Track is a several-day hike through the Fiordland National Park, South Island, New Zealand. It offers some spectacular views over Lake Anau and Lake Manapouri, goes up steep cliffs and ridges, and through alpine meadows, green forests, and beautiful gorges. It’s considered to be one of the most beautiful treks in the world for these reasons. The trail starts at the Kepler Track Shelter and loops 60 km through the Fiordland National Park, walking between both lakes and summiting Mount Luxmore. Although physically challenging, it’s considered a somewhat easy and safe hiking trail. Other popular trails in New Zealand include the Milford Track, the Tongariro Alpine Crossing, the Routeburn Track, and the Te Araroa.
