Milford Sounds Day Tour with Nature Cruise LT-96

Queenstown New Zealand


Day tour from Queenstown to Milford Sounds with a 2.5 hour Nature Cruise and picnic lunch included. There is the option to return to Queenstown from Milford Sounds by light aircraft.

Depart Queenstown for Milford Sounds by road, travelling initially along the shores of Lake Wakatipu to Te Anau and then along the Milford Road, one of the finest alpine drives in the world. The scenery is exceptional, ranging from broad grassy flats, dense rainforest, and towering mountains through to glacial lakes and alpine herb fields. The coaches have been purpose built with tiered and angled seating towards the windows so you have the best view wherever you sit. They also have glass roofs so you don’t miss out on seeing the stunning snow-capped mountains along the way. The drivers have been selected for their knowledge of the Fiordland region and driving experience and the schedule allows plenty of time for short nature walks and photo stops along the way. From the Homer Tunnel emerge into the Cleddau Valley. In Milford join your Milford Sound Nature Cruise for an unforgettable experience, and explore the wonder of this majestic fiord, including Mitre Peak, rock walls scarred by glaciers rising vertically up to 1200 m from the sea and water falls from hanging valleys tumbling into the sound. Following the cruise you will return to Queenstown by road, or select the option to return to Queenstown by air (optional extra Tour LT-96A .)
