Heli-hike the Kepler Track in Fiordland National Park on New Zealand's South Island for alpine views on this ridgetop walk


Begin your Kepler Track day hike in Fiordland National Park with an awe-inspiring helicopter flight to Luxmore Hut departing from Te Anau. Explore the vast alpine fields and enjoy mountain views before descending on foot down the mountain track, passing native beech forest and limestone bluffs before reaching the sandy lake shore. Your day ends with a short cruise across the lake back to Te Anau. The Kepler Track is one of the Great Walks of New Zealand, and this heli-hike experience is the perfect taster while visiting Fiordland or Queenstown. This moderate hike can be tailored to guests and ranges from 8km to 16km over 4-6 hours.
