About Lake Pukaki

Lake Pukaki is a glacial lake that has become famous for its milky blue color and as the foreground to Mount Cook. I can promise you that Lake Pukaki looks much more impressive when you see it in person than it does in any photograph or video. You have to catch the lake on a sunny day, though, to get to see its mesmerizing blue color. The scenic drive from Lake Tekapo to Lake Pukaki is approximately 49 km (30 mi) in length. Driving at about 100 km/h (62 mph), it would take approximately 25 to 35 minutes to drive from Lake Tekapo to Lake Pukaki.

"Gostaria de recomendar imensamente o passeio guiado sobre a história da escravidão no Imperio Português, que pude realizar com o excelente guia senhor Rui. O passeio permite conhecer a história da escravidão juntamente com a história política de Portugal. Ouvir essa parte da história ao longo de uma caminhada pelas ruas de Lisboa, visitando locais em que ocorreu, nos faz pensar e conhecer a história de uma forma diferente."
