Tour Information

What to wear:

We provide complimentary use of the world's leading extreme outerwear, Canada Goose down jackets. Even so, come dressed for a light walk and for being outside. We’re in an alpine location and the tour is over 750 metres above Lake Wakatipu, so warm clothing and comfortable walking shoes are highly recommended. 

Group size:

Tours will run with groups of up to 22 people and minimum numbers may apply for some sessions. All of our Stargazing tours can be tailored to suit individual groups and knowledge levels and each session will be lead by one of our experienced Stargazing guides. A Chinese speaking and Japanese speaking guides are available upon request through our reservations team.

Times and Dates:

Stargazing tours run daily and you’ll need to allow up to two hours, including the Gondola ride time for your Stargazing tour. Arrive at the base of the Gondola at least 30 minutes before the start of the tour or dinner. Session times do vary as sunset times change regularly. Check out the full Stargazing Timetable.
