Tekapo Trek

Hike above worry level in the foothills of the Southern Alps. Be inspired by the magic light of the Mackenzie High Country across golden tussock, snow-capped peaks and the turquoise of Lake Tekapo. Climb a 2070m peak and return to a cosy mountain hut to savour the sun setting behind mountain silhouettes and a star-studded sky - one of the clearest and darkest skies in the southern hemisphere. The Tekapo Trek is also available in winter as a guided trip on snowshoes. Part of the Tekapo Trek covers the same ground as a section of the Te Araroa Trail http://www.teararoa.org.nz/southcanterbury/two-thumbs-track/
