2. Lake Tekapo: Under the Stars

Lake Tekapo offers a magical setting with its turquoise waters and the Southern Alps as a backdrop. But the real magic happens at night when the sky is lit up with a million stars, thanks to the area’s status as a Dark Sky Reserve. Proposing under the starlit sky, possibly during the mesmerizing Southern Lights, adds a celestial touch to your special moment.
