Fiordland has an excellent network of walking tracks within the National Park giving this area a reputation as the ‘Walking Capital of the World.’ Amongst these are the ‘Great Walks’ the Milford, Kepler and Routeburn Tracks. Te Anau makes a great start and end point for these trips. Walkers can stock up on provisions, check the weather and track conditions before leaving.

In addition to these multi-day tracks there is a range of short walks on diverse terrain, providing walking opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. These walks enable access to the rainforest, lake and alpine vistas for those with limited time or fitness.

The Department of Conservation have put out this great little video to show you how to help Love this Place!  Check it out!
