What to Expect

This small-group Milford Sound day tour allows you to escape the crowds and offers a truly unique experience showcasing this spectacular and world-famous region

 

Start the day off with a hotel pick up from either your Queenstown (7:30 am) or Te Anau (10:30 am) accommodation in one of the luxury vehicles. Travel in unparalleled style and comfort in a luxury Mercedes van fully equipped with WIFI and large panoramic windows on board so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery. Along the way, you'll enjoy multiple scenic stops to fully appreciate the views. 

 

The highlight of the tour is a breathtaking 2 hr boat cruise through Milford Sound. It's a true natural wonder and a location that has a rich history dating back over 1000 years to when Maori first set foot there, and then more recently rediscovered by Captain Cook in 1823. The journey into Milford Sound is full of pristine rainforest, open valleys, native New Zealand birdlife, waterfalls, seals, dolphins and on occasions whales and Blue Penguins.

 

Throughout the day, you'll also enjoy lots of fun and informative commentary from your local guide, and plenty of off the beaten track visits away from the crowds. Upgrade your experience with an optional picnic lunch (extra cost $20).

 

Reboard the luxury van for the journey back to Te Anau or Queenstown.

Frequently Asked Questions

We recommend that you come prepared for almost any weather. Even in Summer, the weather can change quickly and get cold, wet, or windy! Come prepared with an extra warm layer and raincoat if you have one. We also recommend you bring sun lotion, insect repellent, and comfortable footwear. If you do not purchase the picnic lunch, you are welcome to bring your own food along with you or purchase some during our stops in Te Anau.

Please be prepared for a long day. Milford Sound is remote and only accessible by one road. This tour is between 12-13 hours and a great portion of that is spent on the road. What can be said for certain is that this will be one of the most scenic and unforgettable journeys you will ever experience. With pristine lakes, towering mountains, and unbelievable valleys around each corner, this is a day to remember!

Kids are more than welcome on all our tours! We have child rates available for all our tours for ages 2-12, and infants under 2 years old travel for free.

While our tours are all suitable for kids, there is a significant amount of driving time on the Milford Sound trip (+9 hours) which may not be suitable for very young children. We welcome kids on tour but believe as a parent you know what is best for your child.

We do not provide car seats for infants or young children but we do highly recommend bringing one for your child. If you do not have a car seat, please contact us 48 hours before your tour and we can arrange to hire one for you for an additional fee

We’re able to cater for most dietary requirements on all tours that provide food – just let us know in advance and we can sort that for you!
