Lake Hauroko Tours
Transport across Lake Hauroko aboard the vessel 'Namu'.
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.

Hi Joyce and Johan,
Thanks for the drop off on the first trip in for the summer! The track is in fine condition, windfalls, mud, bog, steep ascents, descents and tangled tree roots. Well marked. An enjoyable physical challenge, there are some sections where you'll only cover 1km per hour regardless of fitness levels!
It took 3 days to complete going at a pretty easy pace. Easy to follow orange markers, you can't get lost on this track.
Thank you also for all the unrecognised work you and Johan do to preserve the pristine beauty of your environment. Its reassuring to know there are custodians like you take the initiative and who genuinely care for it.
See you again!
