Lake Tekapo Attractions

Picturesque Lake Tekapo and the Mackenzie country area offers many exciting, memorable tourist attractions. We highly recommend taking a scenic flight with Air Safaris. They will take you over the majestic southern alps where you can view New Zealand's highest mountain, Mt Cook. Earth and Sky offer day-time tours and also night-time tours where you can star-gaze through New Zealand's largest telescope. Roundhill ski area offers great skiing and superb alping views in the winter.
