We collect you from your Te Anau accommodation, then travel along the spectacular alpine Milford Road. Your local, experienced nature guides/drivers, are eager to share their stories, knowledge and passion for the area, bringing the mysteries of Fiordland to life.

On reaching Milford Sound you will join a morning Nature Boat Cruise 2.5 hours in duration. The cruise provides excellent viewing opportunities, and plenty of time available to enjoy the waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife (seals, penguins and dolphins) around the fiord.

A picnic lunch is included in the cost, if you have any dietary requirements please let us know.

A walk in Fiordland is a must, even if it is only a few hundred meters. On completion of the cruise we begin our overland tour. Depending on your motivations you can choose a series of short walks with the nature guide or 2.5 hours walking on the Routeburn Track to Key Summit.

Short Walks and Photo Option - Enjoy a series of short, guided walks, with your local guide. Our National Park concession allows us to access the Gertrude Valley, Lake Gunn, and Hollyford Valley, so you can get off the beaten track and explore a range of different environments in this World Heritage Area. Plentiful opportunities are made for you to experience the natural fauna and flora with all your senses and capture it on camera. Catering for all ages and abilities, stops are made to suit people's interests and weather on the day.

Routeburn Track Key Summit Option - For the more active this is walking, hiking or in New Zealand we say 'tramping' at it's best. Ascend up the Routeburn Track enroute to Key Summit through lush beech rainforest and into the alpine environment with panoramic views of the surrounding Fiordland Mountains, alpine lakes and deep bush clad valleys. This option is unguided unless the whole group on the day takes this option.
