THE HUMP RIDGE TRACK, FIORDLAND NATIONAL PARK The Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track is a 3 day loop walk that takes hikers 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. Our two backcountry lodges are in superb locations, each offering a unique stopping point along the walk. Ours is the only walking track in Fiordland that offers upgrade facilities to independent trampers. Enjoy a hot shower and super king-sized bed on your tramp. Helipacking available every Thursday or for Guided Walkers every Friday. Each of our lodges has disabled facilities and wheelchair access to/from the helipad, ensuring that everyone can enjoy a wilderness experience. Heard it’s a long walk? Then consider the exhilaration of the Wairaurahiri Jet Boat option. Take 3 hours off the last day’s walk and thrill to a spectacular jet boat ride up grade 3 rapids on the wild Wairaurahiri River across Lake Hauroko and returning by road Tuatapere.
HISTORIC/JET BOAT COMBO ADDON: For walkers wanting a shorter walk with a wilderness Jet Boat trip! To get a taste of the magnificent scenery this combo can be added to any of the above walks for just $189 per person (in addition to the cost of your walk).
