Combine Tekapo's top two attractions with stargazing the amazing clear skies and relaxing in the hot pools of Tekapo Springs!
Operating from the renowned facilities of Tekapo Springs, this is the only guided hot pools and stargazing experience in New Zealand. Your experience includes a shuttle transfer from Tekapo Stargazing office. The first half of this experience includes a guided tour of the southern night sky with a unique combination of astronomy and stories passed down from the ancestors of the first people of Aotearoa. Then it is time to head to the hot pools, and this is where the tour gets really gets magical! Let the real world melt away as you lie back on a floating hammock over a 37.5 degree hot pool. With soothing music playing, you'll feel like you are floating among the stars as you explore the night at your own pace. Your guides will be poolside during this relaxing experience, telling stories and answering questions about the universe.
If the weather isn't suitable for outdoor stargazing, an alternative indoor tour will be provided. This includes an introduction to the southern skies and the greater universe using multiple mediums including full colour astrophotography, video and virtual reality headsets. This is also followed by a relaxing soak in the hot pool.
