Milford Sound Scenic Tour and Cruise (from Te Anau)

Day Tour - Te Anau
Price: Starting from NZ $158.00 per adult

Take an unforgettable journey from Te Anau through the stunning Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound, New Zealand's most famous tourist destination.

Travel along the shores of Lake Te Anau and into Fiordland National Park, emerging from native beech forest into the picturesque Eglinton Valley, one of only a few road-accessible glacier valleys in New Zealand. Enjoy panoramic views of its ancient forests and gushing waterfalls from the comfort of your glass-roof coach. Take advantage of the photo opportunities on offer at the stunning Mirror Lakes, where on a calm day the surrounding mountain ranges are perfectly reflected in the still waters. After passing through the Homer Tunnel, a 1.2km passageway drilled into solid rock, experience The Chasm - a short walk over footbridges spanning a series of powerful, swirling waterfalls and rapids.

After arriving at Milford Sound, you'll board a purpose-built catamaran for a 1 3/4 hour Southern Discoveries Scenic Cruise, exploring the region that Rudyard Kipling called the eighth wonder of the world. Cruise the length of the fiord and out to the Tasman Sea, enjoying the view and lively commentary from large outdoor decks or the warmth of the indoor seating. See iconic Mitre Peak rising dramatically from the depths to a height of 1,692 metres above sea level, glide past glacier-scarred rock walls and waterfalls that tumble through valleys and crash into the sea far below. Lush native forest clings to steep cliffs, while seals, penguins and dolphins are regular visitors to the icy waters.

After your cruise, return to Te Anau by coach.

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