UPDATE: Timetables have been updated due to flooding and damage on the Milford Road. There will be limited photo stops on the way to Milford Sound: Mirror Lakes and Eglinton Valley will be the only planned stops. If time allows we may make additional stops. Estimated time of arrival into Milford Sound will be 1pm and the duration of the cruises is unchanged.
Explore one of New Zealand's most famous natural attractions by land, sea and air in one day! Start with a relaxing coach journey from Queenstown along the scenic Milford Road, stopping in Te Anau for a bit to eat and passing through amazing glacier valleys, alongside mountain ranges and thick native New Zealand rainforest into Fiordland National Park.
Your driver guide will keep you entertained and informed as you travel, and our glass roof coach makes it easy to drink in the view. Photo stops will be made at highlights like the Eglinton Valley, Mirror Lakes and The Chasm, as long as weather and road conditions permit. Near Milford Sound your coach will pass under the Southern Alps through the Homer Tunnel - drilled through solid rock.
Arriving in Milford Sound, board your boutique cruise boat for a 1 hour 45 minute cruise along the fiord, taking in its natural wonders. See picture-postcard worthy Mitre Peak, cascading waterfalls and glacier-scarred rock walls that rise from the sea. Marine life like dolphins, seals and penguins can often be seen during your cruise, so keep your camera handy.
As the cruise comes to an end, your adventure is only beginning! Soar through the air in a small plane and get an aerial view of all the beautiful scenery you travelled through in the morning, including Fiordland National Park, cascading waterfalls, native rainforest and snow-capped mountain peaks. Your scenic flight will land at Queenstown Airport, and you'll be returned to your accommodation by taxi.
