Kepler Water Taxi – Overnight Hiking Transport Packages

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

  • 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
