Kepler Water Taxi – Multi Day Hike

Get a head start on your Kepler Track Hike – 5 reasons to book our Kepler Water Taxi to Brod Bay

  • Save your energy for the climb up to Luxmore Hut
  • Short on time and good fitness?  Depart early and walk through to the Iris Burn Hut, reducing the Kepler to a 1 night/2 day walk
  • Leave your vehicle in Te Anau or save on transport/extra walking if you are taking public transport
  • The 6km walk from the Kepler car park to Brod Bay is lovely but you will see plenty of this bush scenery on the final 2 days of the hike, save it till then
  • Meet some locals!  We love to meet hikers starting their adventures and we are happy to answer any last minute questions you might have or let you know a little about the Kepler Track on the way over
