Travel with a small group by coach from Queenstown to Fiordland National Park to explore this lush wilderness, including a boat cruise on the Milford Sound. You also see The Remarkables mountain range, Lake Wakatipu—New Zealand's longest lake, and Lake Te Anau—the South Island’s the largest lake.
  • Full-day small-group tour to Milford Sound with sightseeing cruise, from Queenstown

Andy (our guide) was awesome! So knowledgeable, so friendly. He knew all the best places. Advised us on places to go around the wider region. Places to eat (which were really nice too). Just a lovely local. My wife and I could not speak highly enough about this trip.

A magical journey

So lucky to see this truely magnificent natural wonder for the third time in my life, this time sharing it with my children. We had dolphins surfing the bow of our boat for almost all of the trip, it was wet and misty which just added to the atmosphere. A day that I hope my children never forget. And now is a great time to go with only 10% of the usual tourist load going in each day.

Way to Milford Sound

What a fantastic experience! Words won't express the beauty of the place, it is simply stunning!! The boat ride was incredible, and we spent a long time travelling to and from Milford to ride that boat. Therefore I must highlight what a wonderful job the van driver and guide Roland, from Altitude in Queesntown, has done. Roland was friendly, knowledgeable and has given us local facts and information that otherwise we would never have known. he was very patient, a great driver and communicator.
