Lake Tekapo is the name of both a scenic New Zealand lake, and the small town that awaits at the foot of it in beautiful rural New Zealand. Lake Tekapo has been classified as being a UNESCO protected dark sky reserve which means it is the perfect spot for stargazing.
As a site that is globally recognized as a great spot for stargazing, of course, one of the best things to do at Lake Tekapo is to sit out and watch the sunset over the lake. As the sun dips behind the cloud and the orange and red hues of the sunset are gradually replaced by darkness, the lack of air pollution here means hundreds of twinkling beautiful stars illuminating the sky.
Another major appeal of visiting Lake Tekapo is stopping by the Tekapo Springs -- a recreational center boasting relaxing hot springs that are heated for comfort and overlook the banks of Tekapo lake, as well as the nearby Two Thumb mountain range. Spa packages, swimming and other activities can also be enjoyed at Tekapo Springs.
