Mount John Summit Walk

  • dollar sign icon

The Mount John Summit Walk allows you to walk around the summit of Mount John in order to truly experience 360-degree views of the Mackenzie basin, the stunning Lake Tekapo, and the snow-capped mountains in the distance.

The trail through the forest is spacious and well-graded making it negotiable for almost anyone to wander up through the pines covering the hillside. Finish your walk by soaking lakeside at Tekapo Springs.
