Amazingly peaceful lake and I would recommend visiting. The views are awesome, and there is a lovely walk track.

Amazing lake!
Jun 2021
Beautiful lake with amazing mirror reflections. Great for fishing, kayaking, boating or even swimming in the summer months. The middle of the lake boats amazing views of the glaciers and mountains and the back of the lake is part of a Kiwi Conservation! What a place ;)

Highly recommend a cruise on Lake Mapourika. The operator Dale was very knowledgeable of the area and very accomadating. We cruised to a bay on the other side of the lake where we walked through native bush on a well formed track.
So much going on on this walk.

Stopped to enjoy the view

Lovely lake - flat calm when we were there. Very peaceful (when cars weren't going past) - there was a paddle-boarder fishing out on the lake just to give an additional point of interest.

Stunning nature and scenery. Unspoilt and to be made the most off while there aren't a million or so foreign tourists here right now!

A bright landscape

We drove by on our way to Franz Josef and saw that there was not a ripple on the water, we called back later and the mirror like surface had gone.
It’s a great place to go kayaking or even take a boat tour.

Saw it on the map and decide to make a stopover.
Even this lake looks stunning and wishes to go on a boat for fishing and to enjoy this view.

A surprising little place - very rural by side of the road

A smallish lake with a jetty and people paddling - one lady swimming well out.
Nothing else there except for kiaks. A place where people stopped, parked, looked and went on . . .

Stunning reflections!
Apr 2019 • Friends
Quite often stop in at Lake Mapourika on our way to Franz Josef, where we take out our paddle boards and go for a swim. There is a good sized pull off area with a Jetty. The lake provides some amazing reflections of the mountains and the Franz Josef Glacier! The view from the middle of the lake is incredible! The lake is also spectacular on a rainy/misty day too!
