This track is an hour or so stroll to a viewpoint of the Tasman Glacier terminal lake.
The lake freezes over in the winter, and in the summer you can see icebergs floating in the water. A worthy wee jaunt off the Tasman Glacier View track.

the glacier is not that beatifull, but the scenery and the floathing ice in the lake are special. If you have plenty of time, than go here. If you have little time, than think twice about this glacier walk and make sure you don't miss the more beatifull glaciers on the west side of the island (fox or Franz Jozef).
