  • What a fantastic place this is! In April the mountains were entirely snow-covered and so gorgeous at sunrise and sunset. The park is beautifully maintained and there is an excellent visitor center.  more »
  • This place is just amazing! We did a trail of 5 km until you reach the main Lake. The path is signposted and conserved, such as super all in New Zealand. A must for anyone who goes to lake tekapo to Queenstonwn.
