The trip starts in
Tuatapere. We boat across Lake Hauroko
the deepest Lake in New Zealand, passing
the remains of a Maori princess called
the Princess of the Lake resting in
the cleft of a rock on Mary Island.
The track then proceeds up the Hauroko
Burn to the Lake Roe Hut set beautifully
amongst massive granite outcrops,
travels along the tops of the Pleasant
Range with spectacular views of Dusky
Sound and the surrounding mountains
before descending steeply to Loch
The last section travels along the
Seaforth River to Supper Cove in Dusky
Sound. Settlers here used to cover
themselves in kerosene to escape the
wrath of Fiordland's biggest sandflies.
Returning by helicopter Fto civilisation
and a good hot bath. Believe me, you
will have earned it.
A very high level of fitness is required.
