Things To Do Peppers Bluewater Resort is set within the burgeoning Mount Cook and Mackenzie District making it the perfect base from which to explore the natural wonders of the region. Lake Tekapo offers numerous activities including kayaking and rainbow and brown trout fishing or the nearby ski fields offer all the snow activities you crave. Day trips to the hot springs, a hit of golf and star gazing at Mount John are highly recommended.
In the centre of the South Island of New Zealand and at the heart of Mackenzie District lies Lake Tekapo surrounded by a vast basin of golden tussock grass.

Famous for its unique turquoise colour, the result of finely ground rock in its glacial melted waters, Lake Tekapo's geographical central location is protected from rough coastal weather by the Southern Alps in the west and the Two Thumb Ranges in the east.

The name Tekapo is derived from Maori words Taka (sleeping mat) and Po (night) and in the evening the unforgettable clear sky reveals why Lake Tekapo has a reputation for clean air.

Summer or winter, snow covered or golden yellow, the surrounding mountains and the three main contributing rivers of the Macauley, Godley and Cass valleys offer grand panoramic views and many opportunities for outdoor pursuits such as fishing, kayaking and hiking.

Lake Tekapo's main village is situated at the southern outlet of the lake and although small is flourishing and provides needs for many of the region's visitors including dining and other services.
