Lake Tekapo Holiday Packages

Lake Tekapo

The town, Lake Tekapo (the name is similar to the lake) is on the southern tip of the lake, and has some of the most splendid and sweeping views imaginable. The lake is present in Mackenzie District on the southern island of New Zealand.
A turquoise lake amid the snow-clad mountains, Lake Tekapo sparkles beneath the blue sky. It is often a magical experience to see a line-up of mountains reflecting on its waters. Its rock floor is a specialty as the glaciers roll down grinding the rock particles and depositing them on the lake’s floor.

The splendid view of the lake and skiing opportunities on the mountains is worth the visit if you book Lake Tekapo packages. Therefore, often tourists who are traveling from Christchurch to Mount Cook make it a base station on the route.

How To Reach

By Road

Several bus services that travel to Tekapo are available from Christchurch Airport, Queenstown or Wanaka and Christchurch. It is a three hours journey from Christchurch airport to Lake Tekapo. The distance for a road trip is 1200 km.

By Air

The nearest airport to reach Lake Tekapo is Christchurch airport. If you are traveling from the cities of Australia or other countries, you can fly to Christchurch airport.

By Train

You can also take a train if you are traveling from Rangiora to reach Lake Tekapo. However, there are obvious disadvantages as the trains run once every day on this route and the time duration is longer than by road, that is a little more than 4 hours.

Best Time To Visit

Lake Tekapo during winter months (mid-November to late December)

You can visit Lake Tekapo in the winter months when the icy-blue water projects a strikingly different image compared to the snow-capped mountains. It is when the nearby ski fields remain busy and you can be a part of thrilling adventures down the snowy terrain.

The place as a part of Lake Tekapo packages offers many snow activities and you can have good fun out there. However, in case you are there for a relaxing trip, viewing the perfect natural and scenic beauty can keep you occupied as well.

Lake Tekapo during summers

If you have to consider the aesthetics of the place, then summers are no less. The summers enliven the lake, as the wildflowers add to the beauty. You can have a swim in the pristine lake. These aspects make it a perfect visit even for the summer holidays.

Tekapo has many summer activities for its visitors, so you can also look out for a trip during the summer holidays.

Sushanth's 9 days trip to Nepal

6 days ago
Everything was planned well. There were no major hiccups. Mr Prabin is very responsive. He responds you instantly whether its call or a text. Picturesque locations of pokhara lake with himalayan range decorating skies and a peaceful boat ride in it still lingers in my mind. The view of sunrise in nagarkot from himalayan villa was a delightful sight. Sarangkot view was also good.

Vaibhav's 7 days trip to Karnataka

11 days ago
First of all the trip was good, 2 of 3 resorts were really good. Now coming to the details: either Travel triangle or the agent must be able to guide us about places to visit based on who is on the trip. For example we had 2 senior citizens and 2 kids with us. A lot of places in Wayand and Coorg and not accessible for them and we had to cancel our visits to such places. If Travel traingle is just outsourcing trip management then soon you'll loose significance. To me the surprise was a travel agent in delhi planning a trip to south without knowing much about those places. Next time I will think about using travel triangle. The driver was good but he did not realize that there were old people with us who had difficuly in walking, The hotel coorg heights was good otherwise but had a steep approach, the driver refused to come upto the reception so we had to climb up the slope using stairs each time. When we had to use the toilets at the petrol pump the driver left us away from the toilets when we could have easily left us closer to the toilets. At pookode lake he left us at the parking and made us walk upto the entrance. When we saw vehicles coming upto entrance he started making excuses. Also the driver took us to spice plantations where they get commision - Nisty Coorg - they charge 200 per person for 15 minutes spice tour and then sell you expensive spices giving you all the wrong information. If the agent or travel triangle is not able to control such things then why book with travel triangle.

Mohd's 5 days trip to Kashmir

12 days ago
i would just rate 7 out of 10 due to quality of hotel , they do charge much for the 4* but in actual those hotels are just 2* did not like at all the hotel green park in gulmarg , could not sleep whole night due to more noise , we were told that house boat will be booked in dal lake , but it was booked in nageena lake which has very dirty and bad smells of the water , it felt like we are staying in any ponds ,it even the house boats rooms are not well maintained , rooms are just made of plain plywood , you wont feel happy staying in that . only things was nice is Driver Mr. Mushtaq.

Sathyadharan's 3 days trip to Sikkim - Gangtok - Darjeeling

24 days ago
Alpine Retreat Hotel was good for family - Pleasant and peaceful. Very close by to Lemon Tree hotels with all rooms facing the mountains. We were 2 adults and 1 kid. Spacious room. Got free upgrade to premium room from deluxe double bed. You have to take sharing cab from hotel to MG rd. Some say its walkable but we took private one. Food is same like outside for breakfast. Dinner buffet was better. For south indian family of 3, the quantity of food was huge that we had to order only for 2 in ala carte. Staffs were courteous and humble. We booked through Jeremy Travel. They were in contact from prebooking to post travel to share the travel plans. Drivers were good - non alcoholics. Safe drives and polite drivers. Nathula pass was a great experience. We went when there was no snow during 1st week of November. But it was too dry chill weather at Nathula. Elders and kids less than 5yrs might face giddiness due to less oxygen at height of 14000 ft above sea level. Some of traveller's took packed O2 handled cylinders to avoid giddiness due to less oxygen. We went for Yak ride at Tsongu lake and Rope car drive. Local sight seeing we avoided few spots and covered most of the spots before 1pm. So we went to a falls down the hill and returned by 4pm. We have already recommended Jeremy Travels to one of our colleague. If we are planning for north sikkim trip (as it was flood this time 2023), we would definitely plan it with Jeremy travels. Thank you.
