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.

A very nice walk. The walk has amazing views. At the end you see Mt Cook and the Glacier lake.
It is a beautiful walk with breathtaking views, There are many waterfalls around. There are benches and tables for picnics with a wonderful view of Mt Cook and the glacier lake.
The track could be expanded on the leftside so you are able to see the lake from a different/better angle.
Beautiful views over the glacier, 20 minute walk from the carpark, great photo taking opportunities.

Absolutely beautiful, the view.
Quick walk to a nice viewpoint over the Glacier. Able to see icebergs in the lake and boats sailing across.
Short walk and nice view. Less crowded than other tracks.
Shorted than the popular Hooker Valley track, the Tasman Lake offers a lot in less time. The view of the glacier lakes with the icebergs is really nice and actually better than on the Hooker Valley track. The light blue water is beautiful too (if you have a little sun). The nearby Blue Lakes walk is an easy add on, but we preferred this one.
A one of a kind experience seeing the icebergs up close - came for sunrise - was incredible watching the first light hit the mountains!
The stairs up to the viewing deck will get you winded, but the climb is worth it! So cool to see a glacial lake with icebergs floating in it.
Very short walk to see the Lake Tasman. Very steep. Very say to see how short the glacier is today.
Very steep and short walk. You can see icebergs!
Very nice walk and in the middle a lake!
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
