“Pretty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

The whole of the South Island is very scenic, and Lake Te Anau is no exception. A really pretty place, massive lake with snow-capped mountains rising in the background, just lovely.

“Picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

This is a great place to stop and take in the scenery and have a picnic lunch. Plenty of opportunities to stop around the lake and a good area for walking.

“Mystical”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This is the second largest lake in New Zealand after Lake Taupo. It was early in the morning when we stopped at this lake enroute to Milford Sound. I guess the early morning atmosphere lent the lake a mystical feel. A couple of minutes to get a few shots is suffice.
