Tekapo Springs sits beside the stunning Lake Tekapo at the base of Mount John, in the very heart of the South Island. A sedate 15-minute walk from Lake Tekapo village, this is one of New Zealand's premier family attractions, with numerous activities designed to be as active, or relaxed, as you like.
At the heart of the complex are three inviting hot pools, built to resemble the natural wonders of the lakes beyond. Each pool has stunning views, and the crystal clear water (non-geothermal) is sourced from undergound near Tekapo and heated with recyclable energy. There is bench-side seating, private nooks and crannies, and wonderfully therapeutic massage jets which heal and relax. The temperature of the pools ranges from 27 to 39 degrees Celsius. Next to the pools is a sauna and steam room with plunge pool, ideal for detoxing and purification.
