Lonely Planet review

Thanks to clear skies and its distance from any main towns, Lake Tekapo has top-notch stargazing, and the area is known as one of the finest spots on the planet to explore the heavens. Departure times vary, so check when you book. On some night tours visitors can use their own cameras to delve into astrophotography with local photo­grapher Fraser Gunn ( Forty-minute daytime tours (adult/child $50/25) of the University of Canterbury observatory also operate on demand from 10am to 4pm.
