If you're looking for a hotel in Lake Tekapo, you can choose from 8 awesome accommodation options within a 30-kilometre radius of the centre.
Snapping up a room at the Peppers Bluewater Resort is a great option if you're still seeking somewhere to crash. It's situated 20 kilometres from central Lake Tekapo. Just 25 kilometres away, Tekapo Heights is a second option for you to think about.
Sure, you could spend the whole time just in Lake Tekapo, but you're gonna have FOMO. For some truly epic adventures, you've gotta explore the wider South Island region. Don't even think of going home without checking out a few of the region's stunning beaches, coastal plains, forests and rivers. Old towns, cathedrals and art museums are also worth a peek. Still want more? Popular activities in this corner of New Zealand include snowboarding, skiing and mountain biking, so don't be scared to have a crack!
Looking for more things to do? Spend the day discovering the Glacier Hot Pools and Westcoast Wildlife Centre. You'll find them in Franz Josef Glacier, 55 kilometres to the northwest of Lake Tekapo. If you want to spend a night or two in Franz Josef Glacier, consider the rates at the Te Waonui Forest Retreat and Franz Josef Oasis. 65 kilometres to the southwest of Lake Tekapo you'll also find Twizel, home to the Heartland Lodge and MacKenzie Country Inn. Lake Pukaki Information Center and Mueller Ridge are some of the most popular points of interest to see when you're in Twizel.
Sitting 85 kilometres southeast of Lake Tekapo is Timaru, a regional centre with a population of 28,000. It's home to some great attractions, like the Botanical Gardens, the South Canterbury Museum and the Trevor Griffiths Rose Garden. Got another day or so to spare? Check out the vibe at the DB Brewery and the Aigantighe Art Gallery. If you'd like to stay in Timaru, be sure to check the latest deals at the Avenue Motor Lodge and Glendeer B&B Lodge.
Completely over sleeping upright? Dying for a comfy pillow? Then get your hands on a room at the Aoraki Court Motel. It's within an easy drive of Mount Cook Airport, which is 35 kilometres from the centre of town.
