The tour departs Franz Josef Village and travels by road to Lake Matheson where the dark coloured waters create breath-taking mirror-like images with the Southern Alps and New Zealand’s highest mountain, Aoraki-Mt Cook reflecting in the waters of the lake on a clear day. There is a well-formed 3 kilometer track for an easy to moderate walk through ancient lush rainforest circumnavigating the lake.
