Nestled in the heart of the Southern Alps, the Cardrona Valley offers some of the best conditions on Earth for stargazing. With minimal light-pollution and sitting above the clouds you'll be able to easily observe the wonders of the night's sky with the help of your guide.

With a hot chocolate in hand, take in the incredible light show while your guide covers highlights of the Southern Sky, constellations, movements of planets, celestial navigation and general information about what can be seen with and without the aid of a telescope. 

The tour is 1.5 hours long and is not recommended for small children. Tour start time varies throughout the season, please contact Cardrona for date specific times.

Combine Stargazing with a stay in New Zealand’s highest hotel, Cardrona’s Alpine Apartments, at 1670m above sea level for the full Alpine by Night experience!
