Welcome to the Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track

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 super king-sized bed on your tramp? You can also have your bag, or yourself, flown by helicopter. Each of our lodges have disabled facilities and wheelchair access to/from the helipad, ensuring that everyone can enjoy our wilderness.
NZ $0.00

I did this three or four years ago. It was much more difficult going up the mountain side the first day than I expected or what the track description would suggest. An extreme storm blew in - snow and freezing rain - and two women had to be rescued by helicopter from the accommodation at the top. One was suffering from hypothermia and the other was hysterical. It was touch and go whether the helicopter could come due to the high wind and dense fog. I felt that staff should have known about the approaching storm and warned the trampers or cancelled the trip. The weather improved the second day and I was able to descend with no problems and continue on westward on the southwest trail.
