Kepler Track Boat and Hike

The most scenic jet boat ride ever: see actual “Lord of the Rings” film locations on the way down to the beautiful Lake Manapouri. On the way down the river you will get the chance to spot rainbow and brown trout. There is an amazing view around every river bend. The ride has a pinch of adrenalin and heaps of natural beauty. Lake Manapouri is amazing and you may not see another boat in sight.

Your start of part of the Kepler Track begins on disembarking from the boat at approximately 12:00 pm.

A leisurely guided walk begins through towering Beech trees and even taller Rimu trees. Our guide will share his/her knowledge with you; Native trees, ferns and the occasional Bellbirds, Tuis, friendly Fantails, Tomtits, Finches and Robins will keep your camera clicking.

The hike concludes at the large suspension bridge at Rainbow Reach where your transport awaits to take you back to Te Anau

Luxmore Kepler Heli Hike (Minimum of 2 people)

Your wonderful day begins with an amazing helicopter flight. This is an extended flight – more than just getting you to the start of the track. We fly over the largest lake in the South Island (Lake Te Anau) before cruising over a group of “hidden lakes” that can only be seen from the air.

Our first landing is a 10 minute stop on Mt Maury. This landing site is 100m higher than the mountain we will be walking on, so allows you to see the amazing views from above.

We then land at the Luxmore Hut and begin your hike through some wonderful alpine vegetation with our knowledgeable guide who will share their expertise in a friendly and sometimes humorous way. We are now walking part of the Kepler Track.

The views from the Luxmore Hut never cease to amaze.

From here you have the opportunity to take a hike to the top of Mt Luxmore or start the easy hike down to the shores of the lake.

A boat awaits us for our short cruise to the east side of Lake Te Anau.

We had a great day - our driver was very passionate and knowledgeable, and stopped along the way at places of interest for walks (if you wanted to), views and date scones :). The minivan was super comfortable and we could enjoy the scenery which is spectacular. Cruise Milford provided the cruise service and this was an awesome experience on a beautiful boat with a very friendly and informative captain. We had booked to fly back to Te Anau if able but the weather did not permit this, however we were more than happy to make the return trip back with our group by van.

Loved all the walks & photo stops along the way. Our driver Jonathan was happy to accommodate us all, regards length of stops & requests, within the time schedule. We never felt rushed, which was important for us as we normally drive ourselves over for that very reason. The scenery was stunning & the cruise was amazing as usual. Nice scones for morning tea & packed lunch. We had time to meander around Milford as well. We were so happy we decided to take this tour. A couple of very happy kiwis 🤗😊

I highly recommend doing this day trip. Our driver Ray was informative and knowledge, and we enjoyed his quizzes for chocolates. He knew all the best spots on and off the beaten track to stop. The fresh scones for morning tea and a packed lunch were part of the appeal of booking with this company, along with being picked up from our motel meant no one had to drive to Milford and miss out on the scenery on the way. The connecting cruise with Milford Cruises on Milford Sound did not disappoint either. Once again I highly recommend this day trip with this company!

Fiordland tours - you have to make time to do this tour. We had a fantastic day and were more than impressed with the company and our driver and tour guide Jono, what a great guy! Engaging, friendly, a great driver, and very informative about the history and environment. We were going to drive ourselves but were so pleased we didn't! We got to sit back in a comfortable, luxury 16 seater mini van and take in the amazing scenery. We stopped at plenty of places for photos and a few walks (if you wish). We highly recommend this tour. Very professional, a great morning tea, worth every cent.
