Take a hike

There are many day walks in the vicinity of the Lodge and along the shore of Lake Monowai. These include the popular Borland Nature Walk – a 30 minute self-guided walk starting at the Lodge; and the Burnt Ridge track – an hour and 30 minute walk one way to the shore of Lake Monowai. 

After completing Fiordland Great Walks there is scope to enjoy the many day walks and overnight tramps in the Borland area. 

  • The South Borland track is a good day walk that loops back to the Lodge
  • The North Borland track allows you to stay overnight at the Rock Bivvy or continue to the North Borland Hut
  • Walk in from the Borland bivvy to Green Lake Hut, stay overnight and explore Island Lake the next day
  • From Lake Monowai, take the longer track to Green Lake or walk along the lake edge for an overnight tramp to Rogers Inlet Hut.

Hut Tickets need to be purchased beforehand at DOC Te Anau Visitors Centre, DOC Invercargill or at DOC Tuatapere.

Personal Locator Beacons are available for hire from the Tuatapere Service station.
