The stunning Adelaide Cirque at the head of Moraine Creek is one of Fiordland's hidden gems. Lake Adelaide is surrounded by jagged peaks and massive cliffs. The setting is remote and you need to be fit to carry a full pack on this challenging hike and have some experience on untracked terrain.
Your objective may be to just get away from it all, experience sleeping in one of Fiordland's famous rock bivis, swim in crystal clear tarns or mountain lakes, or to build up your photographic portfolio. There is plenty of subject matter as endangered Rock Wrens bop around the rocks, mist swirls around the precipitous crags and colours change as the sun dips below the peaks and the stars emerge.
