    1. Lake Te Anau: 3-Hour Boat Cruise with Guided Walk

    Your tour will begin when you arrive at the historic wharf of Lake Te Anau 5, where you'll be greeted by your crew and welcomed aboard “Faith”. You'll then receive a personalized briefing about safety onboard the ship and what to expect during the cruise.  Once onboard, you’ll be free to roam around and your crew will offer you a drink and a chat during the 40-minute journey to the Hidden Lakes wharf. During this time, you’ll learn about the history of your cruise ship, the vessel’s journey from Scotland in the 1980s and its Royal Navy service during WW2. Upon arrival at the Hidden Lakes, experience a guided walking tour of Fiordland National Park of roughly 45 minutes, and learn about the surrounding flora and fauna from your guide. Once back at the wharf, enjoy a selection of canapés and desserts in the calm of the cove. Finally, sit back and enjoy the journey home or visit the engin...

    Easily one of the best things I've done. Such an amazing cruise with amazing crew and Faith has such a cool history, we fell in love with her the second we stepped on board. Would gladly do it again.

  • Lake Te Anau: 3-Hour Scenic Cruise and Walk with Morning Tea

    2. Lake Te Anau: 3-Hour Scenic Cruise and Walk with Morning Tea

    Begin your tour at the historic wharf of Lake Te Anau, where you'll be greeted by your crew and welcomed aboard. After a safety briefing and check-in, you'll be free to explore the ship. Enjoy some light refreshments on the scenic 40-minute journey to the Hidden Lakes wharf.   Upon arrival, leave the ship for a guided 45-minute walk through the Fiordland National Park. Learn about the surrounding flora and fauna from your guide. Once back at the ship, enjoy a delicious morning tea with a selection of canapes and desserts in the peaceful cove. Then sit back, relax and enjoy the journey back to Lake Te Anau.

    It was a very relaxing and organised trip delivering everything promised. The walk into the native forest was gorgeous and informative and arrived back to a very special morning tea. Nothing was a problem and both the skippers/guides had a lot of information which you could accept or not and a healthy sense of humour. The Faith is a gorgeous ship and sitting out the back was a fantastic experience. Thanks for the memories.

  • Te Anau: Milford Sound Scenic Flight with Lakeside Landing

    3. Te Anau: Milford Sound Scenic Flight with Lakeside Landing

    Begin your adventure by soaring over the shores of Lake Te Anau. It’s a great way to get a feel for the grand Fiordland scenery right from the get-go. Once airborne again, fly high above the remote Wick Mountains and the rugged landscapes that surround the range. Look out for Lake Iceberg, which does exactly what its name says — grows icebergs. Soak up stunning views of Mitre Peak and Milford Sound as they unfold below; circuit the fiord to follow the route of the Milford Track. Soar over the McKinnon Pass — one of the tougher parts of the Milford — followed by a landing at Lake Quill, a hanging lake that is the source of the famous Sutherland Falls. Milford Sound itself is more than 9 miles long, running from the Tasman Sea to Deep Water Basin Harbour. It was the location for epic scenic shots in The Hobbit Trilogy; carved by glaciers, it really is deserving of every superlative you c...

What people are saying about Lake Te Anau

It was great from start to finish. They are both very knowable about their Boat Faith, who is amazing, from where she actually came from in Scotland, and who owned her as well. It was wonderful to see around the whole of the Boat, even the engine room. Had a wonderful morning tea, the the coffee was real. The walk to the Hidden lake was great, it may of been raining but also very special, we even had fantails following us. This was the wonderful experience, and we both highly recommend this trip to anyone.

A trip aboard Faith in Fiordland should be on everyone’s must do list when visiting Te Anau. We felt welcomed and spoilt right from our first step on board. The crew love their boat and their location and it shows. Learned so much and loved the informative walk to the hidden lakes. The drinks and food were a very special treat. Thank you Adam and George! Love it!
