Relax aboard a luxury coach on a driving tour from Queenstown to Te Anau, taking in the rugged landscapes of the South Island before you embark on a Milford Sound cruise.
After hotel pickup, leave Queenstown behind as your coach motors along the shoreline of Lake Wakatipu with the Remarkables mountain range as your scenic backdrop.
Upon reaching Te Anau, stop for morning tea before entering the UNESCO-listed Fiordland National Park. Your driver passes through the Eglinton Valley, flanked by steep glacier-carved rock sides, and comments on the grandeur of the landscape including alpine beech forests and the Mirror Lakes, where you’ll disembark the coach for photo ops.
Continue on through the Upper Hollyford Valley, past Christie Falls, and prepare for the breathtaking sight of the Cleddau Valley upon exiting the Homer Tunnel toward Milford Sound.
During your boat cruise, you’ll drift past mist-shrouded or snow-capped vertical walls that rise 3,937 feet (1,200 meters) from the sea. See awe-inspiring Mitre Peak, glimpse cascades that tumble into the fiord below, and search for penguins, dolphins and seals that inhabit the icy waters.
After your Milford Sound cruise, re-board your coach for the return to Te Anau, where your tour ends.
