“The intense turquoise milky hue of Lake Tekapo is caused by a fine rock flour, ground by glacial movement, suspended in the waters.”

Lake Tekapo lies in the heart of the Mackenzie Country, in New Zealand's central South Island. Christchurch International airport is only a 3 hour drive away and New Zealand's most popular tourist route, State Highway 8, passes through Lake Tekapo and provides exquisite views of New Zealand as it should be viewed, 'naturally'. Mt Cook is only a short distance from Lake Tekapo and the cluster of New Zealand's highest peaks border the lake and provide a beautiful backdrop to some of the best views in the world.
