Explore Peter's Pool

Details

Added by Vita Rice

Distance: 1.2 km (0.7 mi) roundtrip. Duration: 25 minutes. Hike to an easily accessible small kettle lake. The lake was formed by melting glacial ice around 200 years ago. The water is highly reflective and provides stunning views of the glacial valley containing Franz Josef Glacier.

From the carpark for Franz Josef Glacier, Peter's Pool is signposted to the left near the toilets. The walk takes you through a fern and beech forest, eventually dropping you in front of the gorgeous and reflective Peter's Pool. Snap a few photos and then return the way you came or continue along the trail.

This is a great way to start your day in Franz Josef Glacial area. Peter's Pool is especially beautiful in the morning. but can be viewed at any time of day.
