My favourite lake in the whole of New Zealand is Lake Pukaki. It is such a gorgeous blue that you have to see it to believe it! During our year living in New Zealand we drove alongside it at every possible opportunity (which was a lot) but I first clapped eyes on this lake all the way back in 2006 which was when this photo was taken. We spent an amazing 8 days travelling round New Zealand’s South island in 2006 during a round the world trip me and my husband took.
Mount Cook (another favourite place of ours) can be seen in the background – and the road to Mount Cook runs alongside this stunning lake.
If you are lucky enough to visit New Zealand do not leave without seeing Lake Pukaki – it will simply take your breath away!
