Your trip starts with a spectacular cruise along the whole length of the fiord. Prepare to be amazed!

You'll be free to roam the vessel and take in the incredible views from the large outside viewing decks or comfortable indoor seating areas. You can also join the skipper in the open wheelhouse.

If you're a nature fan, head to the outer decks and listen to the specialist nature guides share their passion and knowledge of the wildlife, geology, and history of the fiord.

Later, make a special stop under the Stirling Falls - the most magnificent waterfall in Milford. You can taste pure glacial water here, but careful not to get wet! 

There's complimentary tea and coffee onboard for you to enjoy throughout the cruise.
