What You Can Expect

Milford Sound Full-Day Tour from Te Anau

Milford Sound Full-Day Tour from Te Anau

Board your panoramic coach upon hotel pickup in Te Anau, referred to as the ‘Gateway to Fiordland.’ Your full-day tour includes a majestic 1.5-hour Milford Sound cruise within the UNESCO-listed Fiordland National Park. 

En route to the fiord, your driver-guide motors past the ancient beech forest of the Eglington Valley, pausing at the Mirror Lakes for a leg stretch and photo op. Continuing on through the Upper Hollyford Valley, you’ll be mesmerized by Christie Falls before entering the Homer Tunnel, drilled through the solid mountain rock. 

Brace yourself for the grandeur of the Cleddau Valley, where you’ll follow a footbridge over the Cleddau River to the Chasm to view the river’s turbulent whirlpools before descending into Milford Sound.

From your cruise boat, indulge in the splendor of your surroundings as you glide past waterfalls that splash down vertical, glacier-carved rock walls. Hear commentary about natural wonders such as the postcard-perfect Mitre Peak, which rises 5,551 feet (1,692 meters) from the water. Don’t miss the wildlife such as New Zealand fur seals, bottlenose dolphins and the rare Fiordland penguin. 

If you opted for a provided lunch, open your snack box or dig into a buffet lunch of international dishes, before you re-board your coach for the return journey to Te Anau.

The coach driver was fantastic, the road is difficult, the views are incredible, it will always stay in our mind how beautiful the nature can be and how blessed we are to be able to see these wonderful places.the company is Great Sights and took us a while to find as we had to contact them to pick us from the hotel.

A wonderful day trip, the coach driver was very helpful, informative and amusing. Lunch was delicious, but the only criticism I could find was that we missed the first 20 mins of the trip, because we were inside eating Lunch! All in all I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone visiting the area, stunning!

We saw this place at its very best although it took a lot of heavy rain to achieve that but it was so worth it. The waterfalls were magnificent and our driver brian was so knowledgeable.

We had bad weather but the upside was seeing all the temporary waterfalls in addition to the regular ones at Milford sound. Knowledgable and informative coach driver. We enjoyed the boat trip.

Our Milford Sound day trip was a joy from start to finish. We were picked up from our campsite and transferred to the coach at Te Anau for the onward journey. The driver was informative, witty and welcoming and the scenery just spectacular. The boat cruise was a highlight of our honeymoon - I'd recommend it to anyone. Chris and Sarah, UK.
