Blue Lake

Blue Lake

The world's clearest lake... Blue lake is a spring fed lake at 1200m altitude. Considered Tapu (sacred) by Maori, people are not permitted to enter the lake.

Visibility in the lake is up to 80 metres - meaning the water is considered almost as "optically clear" as distilled water - you will never experience something like this elsewhere.
