The snow-capped mountains, turquoise blue water and tussock-covered hills make a visit to Lake Tekapo unforgettable.

Three hours’ drive from Christchurch, Lake Tekapo is awilderness-lovers’ paradise. Hike into the mountains on the array of walkingtracks, go ice-skating in winter on the outdoor ice rink and pick out constellations at the star gazing observatory. At the end of the day, soak weary limbs in the naturally-heated hot springs.
