Best of the South: YHA New Zealand

When exploring the best the South Island has to offer, you really can’t go past Lake Tekapo for a family holiday or weekend trip. The ice-blue lake, beautiful walks, hot springs, skiing in the winter or swimming in the summer, and stunning views all round – Tekapo has it all. And when you’re looking for accommodation, you really can’t go past YHA.

Tucked just behind Tekapo’s main street of restaurants and shops, the brand new, $9 million dollar YHA Lake Tekapo offers stunning views of the lake, mountains, and the Church of the Good Shepherd.

With all the comforts of home at an affordable price, YHA Lake Tekapo offers a fully-equipped kitchen, laundry, free WiFi, movie room, and a comfortable lounge overlooking the lake. Take a short walk to the supermarket and whip up a family favourite in-house, or grab a bite at the adjoining gourmet burger bar, Our Dog Friday.

Best of all, with a YHA membership you can fit even more into your Lake Tekapo escape! Save on your accommodation so you can enjoy more stargazing, gourmet burgers, hot pools and scenic flights, because with YHA you see more, do
more, pay less.
