Milford Sound Full-Day Cruise

by Gray Line New Zealand Duration 12h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is NZ$214

The breath-taking natural beauty of Firordland National Park and Milford Sound is at your fingertips on this scenic day tour. Witness glacier-carved canyons, deep waters inhabited by dolphins and penguins, and waterfalls that tumble hundreds of feet against a backdrop of snow-capped peaks.

Depart from Queenstown in a comfortable and luxurious glass-topped coach that allows you to appreciate the sheer grandeur of New Zealand's wilderness. As you drive out of the city, gaze out at the peaks of the aptly named Remarkables, and pass through acres of rolling countryside before reaching the lakeside village of Te Anau, the perfect place for morning tea.

From there, venture into the expanses of Fiordland National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site fabled for its enthralling landscapes, dense forests, and craggy terrain. See the reflection of the mountains on the surface of the dazzling Mirror Lakes, and stop to drink the chilled and pure glacial water straight from Monkey Creek. Pass through Homer Tunnel and admire the warped rocks of the Chasm before the Cleddau Valley and Milford Sound's rugged coastline open up before you.

Step on board a small vessel and glide out across the glassy indigo waters of the Sound. Framed by dramatic cliffs, snow-dusted mountains, and lush rainforest, this fjord is home to fur seals, penguins, and dolphins. Watch for wildlife and snap photos of stunning waterfalls running down sheer cliff faces before your cruise comes to an end and you begin the drive back to Queenstown.
