Lake Matheson - Photo by Isaac Khasawneh

At Lake Matheson, near Fox Glacier, nature has combined exactly the right ingredients to create truly stunning reflections of New Zealand's highest peaks - Aoraki (Mount Cook) and Mount Tasman.The waters of Lake Matheson are dark brown, so on a calm day they create the ideal reflective surface. The colour is caused by natural leaching of organic matter from the surrounding native forest floor. By a happy coincidence, the mountains to the east are perfectly positioned to reflect in the lake. The walk from the car park takes 40 minutes to the pontoon, or 1.5 hours around the lake. (Lake Matheson, West Coast, New Zealand)
