Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track
Welcome to the Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track, a 3 day, 55km loop track that takes you along the south coast of New Zealand, up to the sub-alpine zone of the Hump Ridge, and over historic viaducts in the heart of native forest. Located in beautiful Fiordland, New Zealand’s largest national park, the Hump Ridge Track offers diverse and stunning scenery. Our two backcountry lodges are in superb locations, each offering a unique stopping point along the walk. At almost 1000m, Okaka Lodge is the highest point on the track with amazing views. Port Craig lodge, at sea level, offers trampers the chance to soak weary limbs in the Southern Ocean and spot the rare hectors dolphins. We offer a variety of independent walking packages as well as a guided package. We are also happy to set up multi adventure packages with our jet boat and helicopter operators or customized packages for your private group.
We are the only walking track in Fiordland that offers upgrade facilities to independent trampers. Enjoy a hot shower and a super king-sized bed on your tramp. You can also have your bag, or yourself, flown around by helicopter to each lodge. Each of our lodges are fully equipped with disabled facilities and have wheelchair access to/from the helipad, ensuring that everyone can enjoy our wilderness.
The track is open all year round but operates in three "Season" modes: High, Shoulder and Winter (see website for details). A variety of service levels are available during all seasons. See our website for all details
