Full description
Known as one of the world's most spectacular fiords, Milford Sound is a day tour that is incredible in rain, hail or shine. Discover the world-famous fiord on a full-day tour from Queenstown aboard a luxury glass-roof coach. 

Depart Queenstown around 6:45 am to travel along the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Take in views of the dramatic peaks of the Remarkables mountain range before journeying through southern farmland to Lake Te Anau. Pause for morning tea (at your own expense) and continue along the Milford Road into Fiordland National Park. 

Marvel at the stunning scenery from the glass-roofed coach and gaze up at the amazing rocky mountains above. Be mesmerised by the Mirror Lakes, quench your thirst at Monkey Creek, travel through the stunning feat of engineering that is the Homer Tunnel, and see the Chasm. Finally, descend through the Cleddau Valley into Milford Sound.

Board a small boutique heritage vessel for an intimate cruise experience. There is plenty of room to move around, fewer crowds, and the local crew provide an informative personal tour of Milford Sound. Enjoy a light picnic lunch on board. View stunning snow-tipped mountains, cruise past rugged cliffs covered in magnificent native rainforest, and powerful waterfalls. Keep a look out for seals, dolphins, and penguins in the waters below. After your cruise, return to Queenstown by coach, arriving at approximately 6:45 pm.
