Huts are open and operating under COVID19 Alert Level 2 conditions. Check the government website for the latest information on levels and restrictions.

Keeping yourself and others safe

It’s important that visitors take responsibility for their own Covid-19 hygiene and safety:

  • If you are sick, stay home.
  • If you have cold or flu symptoms, call your doctor or Healthline and get tested.
  • Wash your hands, thoroughly and often, using soap you carry with you.
  • Keep track of where you have been. Complete the hut book and take a photo for your records.


Surrounded on all sides by the towering mountains of the spectacular Fiordland National Park, this hut is an extremely popular climber’s hangout. From this base, the rock and snow of the Darrans is on your doorstep.
