Pocket Guide: Lake Tekapo

Lake Tekapo is 700 metres above sea level, and just shy of 250 km southwest of Christchurch in the heart of New Zealand’s South Island. This popular spot offers photographers, dreamers, and nature lovers an opportunity to soak in unspoiled beauty. Lake Tekapo hotels attract stargazers from the nearby astronomical observatory and amateur astronomers alike thanks to the town’s location near one of UNESCO’s Dark Sky Reserves. There’s plenty to see by day as well. The mineral-rich turquoise lake waters provide a wonderful backdrop for biking and hiking. Day or night, you can plan on spending most of your time outdoors!

Hotels and accommodation

With a wide range of Lake Tekapo motels, hotels, and resorts to choose from, this idyllic getaway is a top tourist destination all year round. Most of the accommodation options can be found at the lake’s southern end, whether you want to stay along bustling State Highway 8 or somewhere more secluded. Wherever you select, don’t miss your chance to stroll along the lake’s edge for a photo of the famous bronze sheep dog statue.

Getting there

Driving is best for those journeying to Lake Tekapo, and at less than 3 hours from Christchurch, Queenstown, Dunedin, or Wanaka, it’s a wonderfully scenic ride to the centre of the island. State Highway 8 will deliver you straight into town, making it easy to drop off your bags at a cheap hotel in Lake Tekapo and start exploring right away. Be sure to pack your bathers to take advantage of the nearby hot springs for complete relaxation.
