Walking the Lake Tekapo High Country Trek
The Tekapo High Country Trek is a 3-day guided alpine hike through open tussock country above Lake Tekapo, with panoramic views of the Southern Alps and the Mackenzie Basin. The area is famed for its exceptionally clear skies and intense light, highlighting the turquoise-blue glacial lakes, golden grasses, and white snow-capped peaks.
A covering of snow turns these tawny tussock lands into an extensive playground, not just for skiers, but also trampers on snowshoes, so in winter this is a guided snowshoeing.
Fitness: You need to be fit and able to walk 5-8 hours in a day.
