Kepler Track Freedom Walk
Unlike many other multi-day walks, which evolved from Maori greenstone trails or pioneer exploration routes, the Kepler Track was custom-made - built for pleasure, rather than necessity. Opened in 1988, the track was carefully planned to show walkers all the best features of Fiordland - moss-draped beech forest, prolific bird life, tussock high country, huge mountain ranges, cascading waterfalls, vast glacier-carved valleys, luxuriant river flats and limestone formations. The track’s construction makes for easier walking. Most streams are bridged, boardwalks cover boggy areas and the very steep sections have steps.Walk the Kepler and you’ll see everything that’s marvellous about this exquisite corner of the world.
Considered a New Zealand Great Walk, this 4 day loop track is an excellent option for your family and friends, especially if you love the outdoors and experience the landscapes of the Fiordland National Park.
