Hump Ridge

The Tuatapere Hump Ridge Track is a three-day loop walk that traverses along the south coast of New Zealand and requires a good level of fitness to complete comfortably. The 62km of the Hump Ridge Track takes you through sub-alpine wilderness of native forests to sea-level views. The track is operated under a unique partnership between the Department of Conservation and the Tuatapere Community. The track is run by a Charitable Trust and hut bookings are essential.
