Full description
Discover Milford Sound from Te Anau with a scenic coach journey paired with a relaxed and entertaining 2–hour cruise to the Tasman Sea. Depart Te Anau and enter Fiordland National Park on the stunningly scenic Milford Road.

Take in the grandeur of the untouched wilderness that surrounds you on all sides. From rugged mountains, hanging glaciers to ancient mossy rainforest, punctuated by crystal clear streams and lakes. Sit back and relax as your driver points out the sights and provides light commentary. There will be plenty of photo stops and time for you to take it all in. Arrive in Milford Sound in time to board your cruise vessel to get up close and personal with the wonders of the fiord.

Prepare to be inspired by Milford Sound, whatever its mood - teaming with rain, shrouded in mist or glistening in the sun. Take in the beauty of the waterfalls and towering peaks, with commentary from an experienced local guide. Keep an eye out for penguins, dolphins, seals and the variety of birdlife that call Milford Sound home. Enjoy 2-hours around the fiord and experience the spray of the waterfalls from the safety of inside the boat - or be brave and get right under it. Then, it's time to get back on the coach for the return journey to Te Anau.
