What you can expect

Marvel at the natural wonders of UNESCO-listed Fiordland National Park as you cruise Milford Sound aboard a boutique catamaran. This full-day sightseeing tour to Milford Sound from Queenstown will allow you to take in some of the most breathtaking views in South Island New Zealand by land and sea. Departing Queenstown in the morning, travel across rugged terrain in the comfort of your deluxe coach, complete with a glass-roof for optimum views. Journey through the New Zealand Southern Alps, passing Eglinton Valley - one the country's few glacier valleys accessible by road - and Mirror Lakes where the calm waters reflect the dramatic surrounding mountains. Upon arrival in Milford Sound, board your boutique catamaran and set off towards the Tasman Sea. Glide past glacier-scarred rocks and waterfalls that crash into the sound below, keeping your eyes peeled for seals, penguins and dolphins. See steep cliffs covered in native forest and the mighty Mitre Peak which rises dramatically to a height of 1,692m above sea level. As you cruise Milford Sound, enjoy informative commentary provided by your expert captain, large viewing decks and warm indoor seating alike, and a delicious lunch; all the while soaking up the breathtaking natural landscape of Fiordland National Park. After your unforgettable Milford Sound cruise, board your deluxe coach once again for the return trip to Queenstown or choose to book a scenic flight back to take in the dramatic scenery from above (weather permitting, can be booked on the day for an additional cost).
