By far the best thing we got to do at Lake Tekapo. First of all, the staff and crew are absolutely amazing. Thank you Kirsty, Keegan (sp?), Dave and Igor for sharing your expertise and passion with our group, as well as the group who were at the office at check in. It was very obvious that you had so much knowledge to share with us and not enough time, and we really appreciated the patience and enthusiasm with which you led our group.
We were lucky enough to have a clear, clear sky the night of our tour. We saw
the beautiful night sky, located and learned about the planets visible with the naked eye, and were treated to telescopic views of the moon, Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. This trip was a birthday present for my partner and he was like a puppy at the beach - we are still talking about what a cool experience it was a week later.
Tip: Dress warmly! The coats provided are amazing, but your hands/feet/face can still get pretty cold. There is a little bit of walking and a lot of standing involved; I would recommend bringing one of those small portable camping stools if you have issues standing for more than 20 minutes, if they are allowed.
