Enjoy the reflective views of the glacier valley and mountains on this easy, accessible walk to a small kettle lake. 

About the walk

How long will it take? This is a 1.2km 25-minute return walk via the same track.

The lake was formed by ice melting amongst glacial moraine about 200 years ago. Drive or walk south from the Franz Josef Waiau township across the Waiho River bridge and turn left onto the Glacier Access Road or Te Ara a Waiau. Drive or walk for approximately 4km to the car park at the end of the road.
