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.

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 nice walk and in the middle a lake!

Got up early and had the place to ourselves. Beautiful views the whole time, ending in a great view of Tasman Glacier. Too far to be too close, but the walk was beautiful nonetheless.
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 !!
