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.

Best bit is the fork in the track to the Tasman River. Quiet and can see the lake and icebergs up close whist seeing the glacier terminal.
Beautiful surroundings but the destination was a bit of a let-down as the glacier has receded so much and no icebergs - likely due to time of year.
Nice walk, 3 hours return, but really touristic. We saw a bit of the glacier (300 metres), was good for not so trained person.
3 hours, great walk with baby on the back, impressive scenery.

Really nice view of the lake. Really impressive to see the huge icecrushers.
The icebergs were very small on April but The scenery was stunning. Be careful when you drive !!

Beautiful view from the Summit. Only observation - although a 20 minute short walk, very steep climb and so unsuitable for elderly.
Glacier, lake, river, nice walk.

Awesome views, you do not have to stay there.
Beautiful walking track, iceberg on lake.
Short or long walk. Lakes and spectacular views of the mountains.
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).
