Description:

Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track has all the qualities of a great walk. The track winds across some of New Zealand’s wildest land, leading trampers through parts of Fiordland National Park, along an alpine ridge, through forest, across Maori land and along deserted beaches of the south coast of the South Island.

The Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track is a 3 day / 2 night circuit tramp. It climbs high on to the Hump Ridge and Okaka Hut at 890 metres ( 2 920 feet ). A scenic loop track amidst sandstone tors and mountain tarns offers 360 degree panoramic views of Stewart Island, the Southern Ocean and the wilderness of Southwest Fiordland.

The track then descends along the Hump Ridge to the South Coast track, along old tramlines and across mighty wooden viaducts to the historic Port Craig. Bush and beach tracks following Te Waewae Bay complete the circuit.
