Top 5 Experiences at Tekapo Springs
Tekapo Springs is an award-winning destination with something for everyone. Whether you're in the mood to relax or want a bit of recreation, we have you covered. In efforts to be a year-round destination, we wanted to create activities and an atmosphere that's fun and inviting. Once you take a look at our view, you can see why! For those who haven't been here, take a look at our top 5 experiences below!
We have five hotpools to choose from, all ranging in temperature and size. Last year we added two cooler pools, the Macaulay Kid's Aqua Play + Pool, and the Godley Deep Pool. The Kid's Aqua Play offers interactive water features, cooler water temps for those hot sunny days, and an adjoined pool so parents can soak while they're kids go crazy! The Godley Deep Pool is great for those who want to swim a bit or maybe dive into the cool water. Don't worry if you want to be kid free, we have our adults only Tekapo Pool at the top, boasting the best view and hottest temps. Trust us, it's pure relaxation!

When the ice melts on our ice rink, we immediately start preparing for the ultimate summer activity; our TRIPPO waterslide. This bad boy stands 11 metres high with three chutes, and is 150 metres long. To say it's a big slide is an understatement. Walk the stairs to the top, choose from three different slides and jump on! You can choose to go with friends, family, or solo. Go backwards or face-first for the ultimate adrenaline rush. TRIPPO opens early December 2016.
Glacial Day Spa
For complete relaxation, our Glacial Day Spa has the answers. With treatments ranging from deep tissue massages to facials to mani/pedi's, our spa is a one-stop shop for revialisation. Our newest skincare product comes from Moana, a 100% certified organic New Zealand made brand that only uses native botanicals and products. It's a complete revitilisation treatment that's never been done before. To book in a day spa treatment or view our services, click here.
Snow Tube Park
Open from early July to early October, our Snow Tube Park is one of our main attractions. The 150m snowy slope is a big hit with kids and adults. Go solo, tandem or in a big group. Take the magic carpet up to the top of the hill and do it all over again. Each pass is valid for an hour, giving you plenty of time to mix up your tubing style!
Our international-sized rink is a open April-September every year. From hockey tournaments to private lessons to school field trips, our rink is used for just about everything in the winter. On the weekends we pull out the disco ball, bright laser lights and funk music for our ice discos. Come along and be in to win spot prizes of all sorts. If you're not a fan of skating, we have curling sessions available for eight pax or more. To read more info on our rink and passes, click here.
Bonus: A meal at our Tahr Bar & Cafe!
Nothing beats a patio overlooking the lake in the summer and a crackling fire in the winter. Good news for you, we have it all! Our fully-liscensed bar & cafe is a great place to take a break in between your recreation and relaxation. A full menu is available as well as sweet treats, coffees, and smoothies.
