1. From Te Anau: Milford Sound Coach, Cruise and Walk
Enjoy a leisurely day excursion to Milford Sound from Te Anau, with an extended nature cruise along the full length of the fiord. Your tour includes all the best scenic stops, including short walks. From Te Anau, travel along the spectacular Milford Road with local, experienced nature guides who are eager to share their stories, knowledge, and passion for the area. Upon reaching Milford Sound, you will join a nature cruise traveling out to the Tasman Sea. The cruise provides excellent viewing opportunities and plenty of time is available to view waterfalls, rainforests, mountains, and wildlife. On completion of the cruise, passengers will board a small coach and begin their journey overland. If you prefer shorter walks, stay with the nature guide and enjoy a series of walks in a range of different environments within the National Park. Take a wilderness tea break and regain your strength with hot drinks and home-baked biscuits. Enjoy access to the Hollyford Valley, Lake Gunn, and the Marian Gantry. Step into the ancient native forest, and witness this World Heritage area and its untamed wilderness at its best. Finally, enjoy short walks and scenic stops on a 2-hour nature cruise on Milford Sound before returning to Te Anau.
