Lake Ohau was one of three lakes that we saw on the first day of our South Island tour of New Zealand. It was also the location for our accommodation that night. Personally, I found it too cold to swim (even in February, their Summer) but some others went in. I stuck to the hot tubs at our accommodation! It certainly was a beautiful view to look out to – but New Zealand is beautiful everywhere we went…… let me know if you’ve been.
