Tour highlights

Travelling in a comfortable private vehicle, you'll leave Queenstown behind and venture into the heart of the Fiordland, world-renowned for its majestic beauty.

Pause for refreshments on the enchanting shores of Te Anau, New Zealand's second-largest lake, and prepare to be amazed as the route to Milford Sound unveils breathtaking beauty at every turn. Your experienced driver-guide, well-versed in the region's secrets, will lead you to the very best photography spots. Occasionally, short walks will reveal hidden waterfalls, serene lakes, and majestic snow-capped peaks enveloped in dense native vegetation.

Upon arrival at Milford Sound, you'll be awestruck by the sheer grandeur of this natural wonder. Often referred to as the "Eighth Wonder of the World," Milford Sound is a pristine fiord carved by ancient glaciers. Its deep blue waters, surrounded by towering cliffs that rise vertically from the sea, create an otherworldly setting that is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

At the harbour in Milford Sound, your eagerly awaiting Boat Cruise vessel will take you on a mesmerising 2.5-hour journey of discovery, traversing a landscape that has remained unchanged since Captain Cook's arrival. 

Marvel at the towering Mitre Peak, one of the most iconic landmarks in New Zealand, and keep an eye out for playful dolphins, fur seals basking on the rocks, and even the occasional penguin.

After your cruise, your private tour continues with a leisurely journey back to Queenstown, allowing you to reflect on the unforgettable experiences and memories you've made throughout the day. Alternatively, you have the option of a direct flight from Milford's airstrip to Queenstown, offering a unique and convenient way to conclude your adventure.

Embark on a short scenic nature walk, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the untouched wilderness amongst the ancient native beech forest.
