My husband and I took a long weekend during a new moon in hopes of seeing a great dark sky on Mount John. During the day, we chose to relax at Tekapo Springs. What an enjoyable choice it was! We started with half a dozen rides down the snow tubing track: on our butts, on our stomachs, solo, and hanging onto each other's tubes. The attendants were great and helpful.
After bumping around on the track, we turned our muscles into the hot tubs, spending most of our time in the adult pool. I had planned to do some ice skating but decided not to rush it, as I had a 2pm massage/facial scheduled. It, too, was wonderful. Talk about a deep tissue massage! I needed it.
The attraction is not fancy (so just the way I like it!), but well-equipped, friendly, and reasonably priced. You can't beat the views of the lake and snow-capped (at least in the winter months) mountains.
