Similar to Lake Pukaki, Lake Tekapo is also a glacier lake and features turquoise water with an amazing mountain scenery. It is considered as one of the darkest location on Earth as the light pollution is very low. This means you can easily see many stars and even galaxies without a telescope.


When staying at Lake Tekapo we highly recommend to go for a stargazing tour.
