Relax in luxurious outdoor hot pools, and take in the spectacular alpine backdrop.
Try the ice skating rink in winter on our international sized skating rink, or in the summer Dare to ride the Trippo water slide!
Tekapo is one of the best places to see the stars in the world! Tekapo lies in the very heart of the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, the largest of just eight reserves worldwide. Karl wanted to add a night time experience to complement the day time offerings of Tekapo Springs, and Tekapo Star Gazing was born, combining star gazing with soaking in the hot pools. This unique tour opened in 2017 and is the only guided hot pool and stargazing tour in New Zealand. It was recently a finalist in the prestigious South Canterbury Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards and provides an amazing experience for New Zealanders and international visitors.
An adrenaline packed snow tubing park is open seasonally (call for dates). Grab a snow tube and fly down the snow park. Great for fun for everyone. Tekapo Springs now operates New Zealand's first summer tube ride, making tubing a year round experience at Tekapo Springs.
Our boutique day spa offers a wide range professional massage and beauty therapy treatments (bookings essential).
The onsite cafe has some of the most stunning views in the region, with homemade food, fantastic coffee and a fully licensed bar.
Whether you're staying for a weekend, or just passing though, lift your spirits at Tekapo Springs.

Very nice setting and great for kids. The food was very expensive and took a long time, great staff at the pool counter.
Everything you could want, $32 a person and the option to leave and come back. Great location, good facilities, offer a steam room and sauna too.
Beautiful location. Great view. Downside is the price.
After hiking around Mt Cook during the day, we had a wonderful time relaxing in the springs. There are pools for kids as well as an adults only pool that stayed peaceful. They give you a wristband for the day and you can go back as many times as you like.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Three big pools, good price for the day and the mountains as a backdrop. I wished I was there while it was snowing.
Nice place to chill for one to two hours max. We only had basic entry so maybe could have spent longer. Nice, friendly staff, clean pools and facilities. $25 - maybe slightly overpriced.
Well worth the $25! Soaked in the hot water for almost two hours. Three different pools with increasing temperature. So relaxing and quiet. There is an adult pool.
No real views of the lake. Expensive for a hot bath!!
Very nice at night time. The setting is a beautiful scenery.
The hot spring was so relaxing and a ticket buys you access for the whole day (until they close at 9pm). They have free showers as well and it is great to do after the Mt John Walkway.
Nice features and cool layout, pools, kids playing zone, hot steam and sauna. Not thermal water tho. Was a nice relax after lot of travel. Got a promo code with a brochure.
Before I came here, I thought here is natural hot springs but it was not. It is just a hot pool and not 'hot' for Japanese people who expected 'onsen'.
Very nice setting of pools, views of lake, sauna and steam bath.
