Watch the spectacular stars above the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve on a tour that starts with a guided constellation tour, and ends in the warm waters of Tekapo Springs. Using a floating hammock in the hot pools is ideal for an evening of stargazing that won’t leave you with a sore neck, and access to an indoor star projector means you’re guaranteed to see stars in any weather.

This tour is pure magic if you are wanting to learn or extend your astrophotography skills.Tours will be customised depending on the weather conditions and what you wants to do. This could include wide-angle imagery of the scenery and night sky, imagery of the milky way or constellations, capturing star trails or night time-lapse animations. We will also be offering the opportunity to capture deep sky images through a telescope (available for customers with Canon DSLR’s). And to top it off, we’ll also help you process the images post-capture.
The Southern Sky is impressive across most of New Zealand, but only a visit to the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve offers the opportunity to take in the millions of dim stars in the night sky without the possibility of interference from light pollution. As one of only eight Dark Sky Reserves across the world, artificial light is tightly regulated in this region of New Zealand. With some of the darkest sky in the world and a tiny ratio of guests to telescopes, you’ll see more stars than you’ve ever seen before on this nighttime tour.
