Still one of NZ's little secrets, and one of our favourite places. Snow tubing is awesome, adrenalising fun, follow that with a little ice skating (or watching a fast-paced game of ice hockey or the classic art of curling). Then off to the hot pools for some relaxing. I also had a sauna on my most recent visit, which was... More

Great view from the hot slings. There are three different temperatures to choose from, making it a family friendly attraction. Does get very busy around lunch.

Good people. Fun place to be. The tubing was super fun! Some of the workers there have a bit of a chip on thier shoulder but the others make it better. A must visit if you have spare time

I think we have been jaded by the hamner springs thermal pools, and compared the experience to them. They are good but a bit over priced for the experience. The café had limited food choices. The snow tubing was fun, but we have already done this at remarkable ski field and there one is much longer. the hot pools were... More

The kids really enjoyed it - we did a family pass combo for skate and tubing - NZ138 - good value for money. The tubing was a real hit, they loved it. Skating was fun.

Visited the springs on a cold July day and what a surprise, there were three different pools ranging from 36 to 40 degrees. I felt really invigorated after spending approximately one hour between the 38 and 40 pool. Headed for the sauna only to find out that this costs extra but I give it a miss because I was starting...

Thank you for reviewing Tekapo Springs. To make the most of the view and really soak to relax it is a great suggestion to take your own water bottle so you don't have to leave the warmth of the Hot Pools in order to stay hydrated. We hope to see you again if your in the Mackenzie area. More

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... More

Life can be tough - it sure was soaking in these delightful hot springs with snow all around us. Beautiful layout, we have been here before and like this place better than Hanmer Springs. The adult pool was a great place to relax before we cooled down a bit in the family pools. Lots of families doing the snow slide... More
