  • This is a lovely and picturesque lake, we stopped over by on our way to Te Anau. While there wasn't much to do around the lake in the late afternoon, it was still a great place for some photo-ops.  more »
  • Before joining tour to Milford Sound from Queenstown and Te Anau to Milford Sound stop. So I was surprised that go down the most. After that, running a little and stop at the shores of this Lake, shooting time. However, it didn't seem enough to shoot beautiful sea. Greatly impressed and Lake tekapo.

  • Image: come here most of the games here are going to Te Anau or going to an Fioland Doubleful Sound or Strait 灣, although the city before the town's Lake rules model comparison is small, however, it is the second deepest lake in New West Falkland Islands!!! Worth stopping come and have a look. Just when Weather is bad in the future, but the Lake is still OK, but Wind is very large, like Pacific typhoon days a model courses!

Where to stay in Lake Tekapo

That said, among the available lodgings you'll find a good variety of options, from scenic resorts and cottages to youth hostels and budget accommodations. Motels provide a good option along the side of the roads leading to and from the town.
