With its stunning turquoise water, Lake Tekapo offers a magnificent spectacle and is a year-round destination. There are so many ways to enjoy this part of the country – hiking, fishing or relaxing in hot pools while gazing at the lake.

While you're here, don't miss heading to the top of Mt John for 360 degree panoramic views.  The sheer grandeur of the place truly comes alive at night with clear skies and remarkably dark nights, making Lake Tekapo a stargazer's dream.
