3 Day Loop Walk in Fiordland, NZ

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, we are the only walking track in Fiordland that offers upgrade facilities to independent trampers.

Why not enjoy a hot shower and king-sized bed on your tramp? You can also have your bag, or yourself, flown by helicopter. Each of our lodges has disabled facilities and wheelchair access from the helipad, ensuring that everyone can enjoy our wilderness.

Covid-19 UPDATE

The Board of Directors has aligned with the ‘Traffic-light framework’ as mandated for Hospitality businesses in so far as Covid-19 is concerned.

Due to the nature of our customer experience and close proximity of guests, whereby social distancing is difficult to maintain throughout our supply chain (helicopters, transport, etc.), the risk of Covid-19 transmission has been identified as moderate to high.

Therefore, effective 3rd December all walkers aged 12+, staff and contractors, will be required to present their Vaccine Passport for validation upon check-in at our office, 31 Orawia Road, Tuatapere, prior to commencing your walk or work engagement.

Please note, that no-one will be allowed access to the Humpridge Track without presenting a valid vaccine passport. Those who are medically exempt, will also be required to follow the same procedure. We will continue to encourage good hygiene practice, signing in with the NZ covid tracer app in the Lodges, masks and social distancing, as required by law.

As we appreciate that this may mean some of our clients will no longer be able to enjoy our walking experience, we are therefore, happy to offer a full refund to any clients who hold a booking and need to cancel. We ask that you would advise us sooner rather than later.

For future bookings, a vaccine passport tick will be required on the booking form and please bring your Vaccine Passport with you to your check in.
