Lake Tekapo fun local activities
Lake Tekapo is the second-largest of three parallel running lakes. A popular way of seeing the lake and really enjoying an all-round experience is by exploring the water by boat. Boat trips take tourists all the way to Motuariki Island and all the way to the head of the lake where you can see the amazing Godley Valley. The intake to this lake is also an interesting sight since it has been modified into a power station.
A short drive away is Mt John Observatory, a great place to view the stars on a clear night. Starlight tours take place in the Mackenzie Basin once the sun has faded and the stars take to the stage which is the night sky. This is a fantastic location to catch a glimpse of what the universe holds and just how superb our very own Milky Way is.
