Milford Sound Scenic Tour and Cruise (from Queenstown)

Day Tour - Queenstown
Price: Starting from NZ $233.00 per adult

Discover Milford Sound, the Eighth Natural Wonder of the World, on a full-day trip from Queenstown. You'll travel through the beautiful Fiordland in a luxury coach with panoramic windows and take an unforgettable Red Boat cruise on majestic Milford Sound.

Your journey from Queenstown takes you along the edge of Lake Wakatipu beneath the rugged Remarkables to Te Anau for a morning tea break (own expense). You'll then enter the Fiordland National Park, pausing at the Mirror Lakes before passing through the Hollyford Valley. The road then climbs to enter the Homer Tunnel, emerging above the Cleddau Valley before descending to Milford Sound.

Carved by a massive glacier in the last ice age, Milford Sound is one of the most treasured regions of the World Heritage Fiordland National Park. The best way to check out the heart-stopping, pristine scenery, towering peaks, waterfalls and marine and bird life is aboard a Milford Sound Red Boat. While cruising, you'll enjoy a full commentary about the rich history and environment of the Sound.

Enjoy this tour with a GPS operated multi-lingual commentary; available in Japanese, Mandarin, German & Spanish.
