Lake Hauroko Tours have been operating commercial transport to the Dusky Track & tours on Lake Hauroko since 1980. We are keen to share with you our vast knowledge & experience of the Southwest corner of New Zealand.

Tuatapere is a small pioneering town built alongside the mighty Waiau River. Situated not far from the rugged Southwest coast, Tuatapere offers the gateway to Southwest Fiordland, Lake Hauroko & the Dusky Track.

Lake Hauroko is the deepest known lake in New Zealand. It is completely natural with no man made interference, and is a spectacular start to the Dusky Track.

Lake Hauroko Tours operates a scheduled boat service to and from the Lake Hauroko end of the Dusky Track on Mondays & Thursdays from the begining of November to the end of April. Other days are available by arrangement.

Lake Hauroko Tours picks up from Clifden and meets all connections from Te Anau or Invercargill.


2016 - 2017 Start of Season Track Report

Hi Joyce,

We just got back from our hike, Thank you again for the charter in, it was amazing.

Just wanted to up date you with a bit of track info. The trail is well marked but incredibly tough; a tangle of roots, deep mud, slippery rocks and steep climbs and descents.

There was a lot of trees down over the track. Particularly between supper cove and West arm. One between supper cove and loch marree was very dangerous, on a cliffs edge, trampers need to tread very carefully. I'll email the doc because I think it needs removing to be safe.

One of the hardest walks I've ever done but worth every minute, spectacular!

Thanks again Joyce, it was lovely meeting you.
