Cruising Milford Sound is among New Zealand’s most spectacular activities, but the mountain scenery that lines the coast is just as gorgeous. Experience both on this full-day trip from Queenstown, traveling through the heart of Fiordland National Park, and then cruising all the way to the edge of the Tasman Sea. An included Kiwi-style barbecue lunch completes the excursion, which includes plenty of sightseeing stops throughout the day.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Queenstown (select hotels only), and then board a comfortable coach bus for the scenic trip to Milford Sound.

Follow the Eglington River to the head of Eglington Valley, with a break to stretch your legs on a walk through the lush forest. Your lunch of lamb-and-chicken kebabs, sausages, salads, fresh bread, and juice is served en route.

Continue through the Homer Tunnel, and then wind into the Cleddau Valley, arriving at Fiordland National Park. Upon arrival at Milford Sound, board a sightseeing cruise for trip that traces the sound to the outlet on the Tasman Sea, passing waterfalls that tumble from high cliffs along the way. Keep your camera ready during this portion of the tour as it’s common to spot seals and other wildlife while cruising Milford Sound.

Following your time at Milford Sound, begin the return trip to Queenstown, where this tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel.

Fun Day!

We had a great tour with Graham! It was a long day with a lot of bus time but the views were worth it! The views were excellent, and that was on a day without the best weather. I'm sure it'd be even more stunning...More
