Lake Matheson, West Coast, New Zealand

Lake Matheson, West Coast, New Zealand

Description: Lake Matheson is near Fox Glacier. A 2 hours long loop track along the lake offers truly stunning reflections of New Zealand's highest peaks - Aoraki (Mount Cook) and Mount Tasman.

The waters of Lake Matheson are dark brown, so on a calm day they create the ideal reflective surface. The colour is caused by natural leaching of organic matter from the surrounding native forest floor.
