This is not called a "great walk" for nothing. Fantastic and diverse scenery, great mountain huts, well marked track, very few sandflies, and lost of Keas. Note that you need to pre-book hut tickets during main season with DoC. You can also do day walks...More

We did the hike in January 2018 with our four kids aged 7, 8, 11 and 12. If your kids are experienced bushwalkers they'll have no trouble with it at all, providing their packs aren't too heavy. The walk up out of the forest was...More

Have been "tramping", 'kiwiese' for bush walking/hiking/trekking in the area for over 3 decades. Extraordinarily beautiful/tranquil National Forest with a wide variety of bird songs to keep you entertained along the way. The Track sits across the beautiful lake and town of Te Anau, known...More

My fiancé and I walked to Brod Bay and it was sensational. The moss covered forest floor, ferns etc. make it so incredible. The signs advised 1.5hours each way (3hr return) we walked and a brisk pace and it took just under 2 hours. Watch...More

No sure there is a guided tour. Not needed anyway. A reasonable level of fitness is still required for this hike. But the tracks are superb. Head to the Luxmore hut for your first night, be prepared for 3-4 hour climb... More
