Lake Matheson is one of the West Coast icons, and its amazing early morning and late afternoon reflections are a favourite of professional photographers.
The evening sunsets on the Southern Alps creates picturesque views of Aoraki/Mt Cook and Mt Tasman bathed in the last of the evening light, etching lasting memories that often fail to be captured in photographs. The towering rimu, kahikatea and kiromiko trees shelter the old glacial remnant and a boardwalk weaves its way through the landscape, offering tantalising views of the alps above.
Whatever the time of day, the 90 minute walk around the lakeside is something special and worthwhile. From the carpark which is 6 kilometres from your Distinction Fox Glacier hotel accommodation, the track is well formed and easy to follow.
