Tekapo Springs

Holiday Travel Guide
Tekapo Springs featuring landscape views and snow

Lie back and relax in healing waters, enjoy a massage or get involved in a range of outdoor activities, all with a fabulous alpine backdrop.

Soak in soothing heated pools or pamper yourself with a remedial treatment at the Tekapo Springs spa.

Sprawling Lake Tekapo and the breathtaking Southern Alps provide a superb location for this excellent family recreation park. Head to the hot pools and admire the spectacular scenery in complete comfort. The water temperature stays at around 104 F (40 C) and massage jets will soothe any aches you may have developed.

If you are looking for something more serene, book into the Glacial Spa. Indulge yourself with a massage or pedicure before spending some time in the sauna and steam room. For a more refreshing option, try the plunge pool. This pool is kept at the same temperature as the chilly waters of Lake Tekapo. See how long you can last before running back to the warmer water.

Fans of outdoor pursuits will love the 36-foot (11-meter) high waterslide. More exhilarating activities can be found at the tubing park nearby. During winter, this area becomes a 492-foot (150-meter) long snowfield that you can fly across on a blow-up ring. Visit in the summer to see if you can navigate the twists and turns of the synthetic grass track.

After your day of relaxation or adrenaline, enjoy a hearty dinner at the café and bar. A range of hot meals and snacks are served through the day. Enjoy your meal from an unbeatable vantage point overlooking the lake.

Tekapo Springs is on the south end of Lake Tekapo, approximately a 3-hour drive from Christchurch. There is a charge for entry and you will have to pay extra for treatments such as massages. Find accommodation at Lake Tekapo or in the nearby towns of Twizel and Fairlie.
