Tekapo Springs

Spa in Lake Tekapo

There's nothing nicer on a chilly day than soaking in the thermal waters of these landscaped outdoor pools, with views over the lake to the snow-capped mountains beyond. Pools range in temperature from 28°C to 40°C, and include an artificial beach and aqua play area. There's also a steam room and sauna ($6 extra), along with a day spa.

During the colder months (May to September) the attached ice-skating rink and snow-tubing slide are available, while in summer (December to March) there's the world's largest inflatable slide and slippery-slope tubing.
