Pastel colors, fairytale locations and spectacular sunsets make this destination ideal for falling in love.
Lake Tekapo is the best place to fall in love. The lake is located in the heart of New Zealand, at the foot of the Aoraki, Mount Cook, the highest mountain in the country.
The small site in the South of the Canterbury region earned top marks on a list of the most romantic places in New Zealand.
On the shores of the lake you can enjoy wonderful landscapes, the waters of the lake are turquoise, color given by the icy bottom of the basin in which lies, in the Mackenzie basin, 700 meters above sea level. All around the vegetation frames the body of water with magnificent flowers and green fields.
Near the church there is a bronze statue representing a shepherd dog of the collie breed. The statue was commissioned by the locals in recognition of the indispensable role of the faithful friend of man for the existence of those who were devoted to sheep farming.
Near the lake there is also a Mount John astronomical observatory to witness the truly unique spectacle of the sky.
