Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track
|The Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track is a 55km, 3 day loop walk that winds along the south coast of New Zealand, through the pristine Fiordland National Park and up to the sub-alpine zone of the Hump Ridge. At the top of the Hump Ridge range, walk around soaring limestone tors and enjoy panoramic views of south-west Fiordland, the Southern Ocean, and Stewart Island.
Your walk will take you from golden sandy beaches, through unspoilt native forest, to glorious mountain-top scenery and over the largest wooden viaduct in the world.
Independent or all-inclusive guided packages are available. The Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track is a private walk, operated by a community based Charitable Trust. Prior booking and payment is essential.
At almost 1000m, Okaka Lodge is the highest point on the track. Port Craig Lodge, at sea level, offers trampers the chance to soak weary limbs in the Southern Ocean and see the rare Hectors dolphins. The Lodges sleep up to 40 people each and are fully wheelchair accessible.
Guests sleep in individual bunk beds, with 8 beds to a room. Lodges are gas-heated and have flush toilets and solar lighting throughout the complex. The Lodges have fully equipped kitchens with cooking gas, crockery, cutlery, pans and utensils for trampers use. Free porridge and brown sugar is provided each morning.
Both Lodges have a fully licensed bar/shop so you can relax at the end of your day''s walk and watch the fabulous Fiordland sunsets with a glass of New Zealand wine or beer.
