The ultimate day out, with something for everyone, this is one of New Zealand’s premier family attractions, with numerous activities designed for recreation and relaxation.
At the heart of the complex lie five inviting hot pools, built to resemble the natural wonders of the lakes beyond. Each of the adjoining pools enjoys an outstanding panorama of lakes and mountains, and the crystal clear water is sourced from the surrounding alpine springs and heated with recyclable energy. The temperature of the pools ranges from 28 to 39 degrees Celsius, perfect for lying back and taking in those mountain views. The Day Spa is great for those who like to be completely pampered. Four fully equipped spa rooms provide the ultimate in massages, facials, pedicures, manicures and total body care.
For the more active, in winter check out the international size outdoor ice rink, where you can strap on your skates and enjoy the picturesque views. The snow tube park will get your adrenaline pumping. What’s not to like about flinging yourself down a 200-metre ice ramp on an inflatable tube? In spring and summer there is the TRIPPO waterslide, which is New Zealand’s largest inflatable waterslide at 11 metres high and boasting a 53 metre slope.
Tekapo Springs is a year-round ‘must-do’ on the bucket list of visitors to the South Island.
From Lake Tekapo Village, Tekapo Springs is located on the lake side nearest Mount John at the end of Lakeside Drive.
