Experience a night under the stars you will never forget with this 90 minute Stargazing Tour in Lake Tekapo. With nearly zero light pollution, witness the most beautiful deep sky objects through the 9.25 inch telescope, learning all about the incredible constellations from the professional guide.
Head out with your guide to a beautiful location with nearly zero light pollution, in the Dark Sky Reserve at Lake Tekapo. You will have access to the powerful 9.25 inch computerised telescope, allowing you to see a variety of constellations and astronomical objects. Learn about the ancient stories, scientific facts, Greek mythology as well as Maori legends, from your professional astronomy guide leading the way. Photos are included so you can take home unique pictures of yourself looking up at the star filled sky above. Throughout the experience, you can use the blankets, mattresses and pillows to lay back and gaze up to the stars, staying cosy and warm. To finish off this once in a lifetime experience, enjoy a decadent hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows over the fire pit.
There will be a maximum of 10 people on this tour.
Weather conditions are very changeable in the Mackenzie basin, so the provider cannot guarantee a perfect cloudless sky. A full refund will be offered to guests if the service is cancelled due to weather conditions (cloud, rain, snow, fog). The decision to cancel is at the discretion of Chameleon Stargazing.
Please wear warm clothing, comfortable shoes and/or bring a blanket to use during the experience all year round.
Smoking or drug consumption is not permitted during the time you are participating in our tour. If guests are considered to be intoxicated or under the influence of drugs, or deliberately intend to damage the equipment, the service will be cancelled, and no refund will be given.
This experience takes place at Andrew Don Drive in Lake Tekapo.
RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
