Visit Milford Sound and Fiordland National Park on a scenic, full-day trip from Te Anau that explores some of the South Island’s most spectacular places. Adding sightseeing stops on your way to a Milford Sound cruise means you'll have time to hike, snap photos, and enjoy gorgeous views as you travel through Eglington Valley, the Homer Tunnel, and Cleddau Valley, with a barbecue lunch included.
What to Expect
Leave Te Anau on a road that follows Lake Te Anau towards Fiordland National Park, where you’ll make the first stop of the day to snap some photos of the beautiful Eglington Valley. Since many Milford Sound tours continue straight to the fiord, you’ll enjoy uncrowded views of the places you pass, from Homer Tunnel to the Hollyford River and Cleddau Valley.

Upon arrival at Milford Sound, board a cruise boat for a trip with soaring peaks and waterfalls on either side. Watch for native seals, penguins, and dolphins in the water—even whales can swim into the deep waterway.

Depending on the season, the barbecue lunch of lamb kebabs, chicken kebabs, sausages, salads, fresh bread, and fruit juice will be served on the way to Milford Sound or on the boat, with vegetarian options available upon request.
