What to Expect

Leave the driving up to your guide so you can enjoy the stunning scenery on the route to Milford Sound from either Queenstown or Te Anau. 


You'll travel to Milford Sound in a comfortable, modern Mercedes van with panoramic windows for superior viewing, as your driver shares their extensive knowledge of the area along the picturesque Milford Road. Along the drive, you'll see local points of beauty such as Mirror Lakes, Knobs Flat and the famous Eglington Valley.


Look out for a silver Mercedes van. The Cruise works in conjunction with Altitude Tours, a luxury coach provider, and they will pick you up for the journey to Milford Sound. 


Milford Sound Cruise


Sit back and relax as your cruise makes its way out into Milford Sound past the iconic Mitre Peak. You'll sail the length of the 16km fiord, out past St Annes Point Lighthouse, with informative commentary from the skipper, who will highlight points of interest along the way, including the mighty Lady Bowen Falls, Lion Mountain, Copper Point, Seal Rock and Stirling Falls.


You'll see towering peaks, sheer cliffs, cascading waterfalls and lush rainforest. Feel the spray of Fairy Falls and listen to the sound of nature thriving in its habitat.


The boat will also take you out into the Tasman Sea to enjoy the unique opportunity of approaching the fiord, just as the first sealers did in the 18th century.


Be sure to keep an eye out for seals basking in the sun, pods of dolphins, or rare Fiordland Crested Penguins that can be found seasonally within the region.


Keep warm with complimentary tea and coffee in the lounge and take in the scenery through expansive windows. Alternatively, venture onto the spacious outdoor viewing decks to breathe in the pristine alpine air. Either way, you will be inspired by the majesty of the region.


Journey Home


You can stop for some great photo opportunities during the return coach journey. When departing from Queenstown, this day trip usually takes just over 12 hours, or nine hours if you're joining from Te Anau.
