If you really need convincing...

Starlight star bright

First star I see tonight

I wish I may I wish I might

See more than one of you sometime soon...

You don't have to wish on a star to make this dream come true! Treat yourself to the ultimate in stellar relaxation with Tekapo Star Gazing's 2 hour experience.

The first half of the tour begins with an introduction to the night sky by a star gazing guide, and is complemented by looking through three high-powered telescopes pointed at some of the most interesting features of the southern skies. This guided portion of the tour focuses on the mythology and legend attributed to celestial objects by different cultures around the world. If the skies do not co-operate for outdoor stargazing, an exciting indoor experience is run instead, featuring the use of a high-definition projector and stunning full-colour satellite images of deep space as well as interactive elements and similar fascinating and informative content as in the outdoor tour.

The second half of the tour is where it really gets magical –in a 38-degree hot pool, let the real world melt away as you lie back with the help of a floating hammock to ensure ultimate relaxation and easy sky viewing. While soothing music plays, feel like you are floating among the stars as you explore the night at your own pace. The guides will be poolside during this unique star viewing experience, so if any questions come to mind or if you would like to know more about the cosmos, simply ask!

The 10:30pm tours are suitable for everyone age 6 and above, with an adults only tour at 11:30pm, and include complimentary transport to and from the village centre if required, with a pool wheelchair available on request.

Tours will entail either an outdoor guided tour with the use of their Professional Celestron 9.25 Aperture and Sky Watcher Esprit 120 telescopes, OR an exciting indoor guided tour utilising our high definition projector with fantastic colour astro images and video. The indoor component will feature the same guided content as the outdoor tour including photos of the night sky in Tekapo.

Their talented Star Gazing Guides will point out the seasonal major night sky features and tell you about their significance for navigational and cultural purposes for European, Maori, Polynesian, Aboriginal and Greek cultures along with some entertaining and relatable stories. After theformal guided tour, star gazers will be invited to get changed and enter the relaxing hot pools which will be dimly lit until everyone is in the pools.

Once star gazers are all settled in the hot pools, lights will be turned down to a soft glowing red, and beautiful relaxing music will start to play. Bathers will be offered floating hammocks so they can comfortably lie back and relax and continue to enjoy the Southern Night Sky. A Star Gazing Guide will be present while you are in the pools to answer any questions you may have.

The team at Tekapo Star Gazing will be delighted to guide you through this inspiring experience. Hit Buy Now, give them a call and secure your spot today!
