Tekapo Star Gazing offers a unique star gazing experience. Guided tours will tell you a story about the southern night sky and what many of its prominent features mean for both European and Maori culture and navigation.
Our star guides will entertain, enlighten, and mystify through our night sky tours. Human kinds relationship to the night sky has always been very important throughout history, from a cultural, navigational, and astrological perspective. It is only very recently, in perhaps the last 200 years that we have had less of an intimate relationship with the starry night sky’s.
Allow us to re unite you with the magnificent southern night sky in a warm and relaxing environment. Listen and be fascinated with our one and a half hour guided tours. In the first half hour of our guided tour, guides point out prominent features either from the sky if clear, or on our high definition projector screen and tell stories about these features. Following this, you will be invited to soak in our hot pools with the lights off, listening to relaxing astro music and floating with the assistance of a buoyancy pillow so you can look straight up the incredible night sky.
