A three to four day hike on the edge of the Fiordland Wilderness. The region receives high rainfall and changeable conditions. Rain, snow and cold snaps occur at almost any time of year. All pre-departure planning and preparation can be done in Te Anau at the Fiordland National Park Visitor Center on Lake Front Drive.

I loved the hike along the top (once I got there!) along the ridge. Beautiful views...you feel like you’re on top of the world. Side hikes to the cave and waterfall are a must!

i did it under snow and low clouds but it was still magical to be above the bushline

Wow kepler, probably deserves an ode but a mere review will have to suffice. Spectacular scenery from lakeside to fern filled forests and gnarly trees growing sideways out of the hillside to sweeping views of valleys and lakes with clouds rolling in and out like the tide. With good weather the views cannot be beat. The sleeping huts make your pack lighter. This trek is a must do!
