Mt John Observatory – For amazing views of the Mckenzie country and a very interesting place to visit.
We spent four nights and very hot days in Tekapo over Christmas. We’ve had quite a few visits to the Mckenzie District but still found plenty of places to explore.
One of our iconic tourist spots – Mount Cook, breathtakingly beautiful scenery at every turn!
As well as Labour day on Monday we took Friday off, so a four day weekend – great!!
If you are in the Mount Cook area, take a drive up the Tasman Valley for amazing views of Mount Cook, the Tasman glacier and Tasman Lake.
Recently we were lucky enough to get a flight to the Tasman Glacier which was absolutely amazing!! If you are in the Mount Cook area and get the chance, budget and weather permitting, take the scenic flight. The scenery is breathtaking and the sheer scale of the glacier is incredible.
