Departing from Queenstown, you’ll travel to Milford Sound in a comfortable, modern Mercedes van with panoramic windows for superior viewing, as your driver shares their extensive knowledge of the area along the picturesque Milford Road. Along the drive you’ll see local points of beauty such as Mirror Lakes, Knobs Flat and the famous Eglington Valley. This is followed by your 2-hour cruise of Milford Sound. Sit back and relax as your cruise makes its way out into Milford Sound past the iconic Mitre Peak. We’ll sail the length of the 16km fiord, out past St Annes Point Lighthouse, with informative commentary from our skipper who will highlight points of interest along the way including the mighty Lady Bowen Falls, Lion Mountain, Copper Point, Seal Rock and Stirling Falls. You’ll see towering peaks, sheer cliffs, cascading waterfalls and lush rainforest. Feel the spray of Fairy Falls and listen to the sound of nature thriving in its habitat. We also take you out into the Tasman Sea so you can enjoy the unique opportunity of approaching the fiord just as the first sealers did way back in the 18th century. Be sure to keep an eye out for seals basking in the sun, pods of dolphins, or rare Fiordland Crested Penguins that can be found seasonally within the region. Keep warm with complimentary tea and coffee in the lounge and take in the scenery through expansive windows. Or venture onto the spacious outdoor viewing decks to breathe in the pristine alpine air. Either way, you will be inspired by the majesty of the region. Complete your journey with an epic birds-eye view of this untouched region as you fly back. Scenic flights from Milford Sound are nothing short of spectacular! Fly over snowcapped mountain ranges, tumbling waterfalls and sparkling lakes including the breathtaking and incredibly blue Lake Wakatipu upon landing in Queenstown.
