Full description
Enjoy a later pickup time than most Milford Sound day trips, there'll be no need to rush your breakfast before joining the glass-roof bus for a magical journey into Fiordland National Park. Board the bus, and marvel at some of the world’s most magnificent scenery from the large coach windows and glass-roof.

Pause in Te Anau for a delicious lunch of your choice with exclusive reserved seating. Your friendly coach drivers will provide wonderful commentary throughout and stop for scenic photo and short walk opportunities. The crowds will have rushed ahead, leaving a magnificent Fiordland landscape that you won't have to share.

At Milford Sound, board a premium glass-roof catamaran, the 'Gem of the Sound', for the scenic cruise of a lifetime.
