Best Scenic Cruises in Fiordland

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Queenstown team

Queenstown Scenic Cruises offer memorable trips across the placid waters of Lake Wakatipu and, further north, Milford Sound. With spectacular mountain backdrops, and heaps of history, cruises here are so much more than just sitting on a boat.  

Scenic Cruises in Queenstown are special for a number of reasons. With the stunning Lake Wakatipu right there, and Milford Sound, just 'up the road', this area is made for exploring. With Te Anau, Queenstown is the main hub for those wishing to explore Milford Sound. You can make your own way up there, or join a coach/flight trip.  If you want to stay closer to base, there are numerous cruises across Lake Wakatipu.
