Stargazing Guided Tours Experience the unparalleled beauty of the Night Sky
Sorry but Starlight Adventures will not operate during the 2019/2020 season as the last three summers have been predominately overcast for stargazing in the Twizel area.
We invite you on an exclusive stargazing adventure. The remote mountain setting provides a unique dark sky experience not available anywhere else in New Zealand. Our personal and friendly staff will make sure you are warm and comfortable as you are guided through the Milky Way and beyond. Sit back and relax under the unparalleled beauty of the southern night sky.
You will hear Maori legends, tales about the stars from other lands, listen to scientific facts about the night sky, planets, stars and galaxies, all of which can be seen with the naked eye.
The tour is approximately 2 hours long from the time we meet you, to the time we drive you back.
