Hiking poles and good shoes recommended. Snack are also a good addition. Can consider swimming at the lake but it is very cold. One negative is that the toilet at the carpark is very smelly. (There’s a toilet at the lake but we didn’t use it.)
  • Words and photos can't describe how good this place is on a foggy day. The hike is quite easy with some uphill bits at times. A must do it you're in fjordland!
