Lake Pukaki is the largest of one of three roughly parallel alpine lakes that run north south along the northern edge of the Mackenzie Basin on New Zealand’s South Island. The other lakes are Lake Tekapo and Ohau. All three of these stunning lakes were formed when the terminal moraines of receding glaciers blocked their respective valleys, forming moraine-dammed lakes. Thanks to the glacial feed, the lakes take on a distinctive blue colour and are a stunning sight in all weather. Take a picnic lunch and enjoy the gorgeous views of Lake Pukaki.
