Easter Walking On The Hump Ridge Track

MEDIA RELEASE: 5 April 2011

Easter Walking On The Hump Ridge Track

A few places are still available for walkers wishing to tackle the Hump Ridge Track over the Easter Weekend.

Trampers can either undertake the full Hump Ridge loop track or, if walking with children, can opt for the Viaducts Walk into Port Craig. Each is a 3-day tramp, offering stunning views of south-west Fiordland. Upgrade options include: hot showers, private premium rooms, heli-packing, heli-lifts and track transport to the start of the track.

Pick-ups from Invercargill and Queenstown also available. Give us a call at Hump Ridge HQ (03 2266739) or visit our website ( for more information.

The Hump Ridge Track season may be drawing to a close but the plans and plots continue. To celebrate the end of season with all our trampers and supporters we’re holding a winter shindig on 28 May. Just $40 buys a fabulous three course dinner, front seats to one of the finest bands in Southland and all the bonhomie that can be stuffed into a Saturday night.

All are welcome and the party will be held at the new Last Light Lodge in Tuatapere – soon to be a Southland hub for fine food and coffee. Accommodation is available at the Last Light Lodge for anyone who would like to stay. Only 60 places available so make sure you get your tickets early!
