Experience the wonderful and breathtaking Milford Sound from the land, sea and sky on this full-day tour from Queenstown.
Depart Queenstown and travel by luxury coach along the edge of Lake Wakatipu beneath the rugged Remarkables mountain range on the road to Te Anau, the "Gateway to Fiordland". After a brief morning tea break in Te Anau, enter the Fiordland National Park and prepare to be mesmerized by the grandeur of this region. Pass through the Eglington Valley and see ancient alpine beech forest, stunning waterfalls, and the famous Mirror Lakes. The coach will pause here for photo opportunities.

The tour then progresses through the Upper Hollyford Valley, past the stunning Christie Falls and enters the 1.2 kilometer (0.75 miles) long Homer Tunnel, drilled through the solid rock of a mountain. As you exit the Homer Tunnel, prepare yourself for the breathtaking impact of the Cleddau Valley and the descent into Milford Sound.
At Milford Sound, embark on a spectacular Milford Sound Red Boat cruise on the majestic fiord, where you will see the wonders of Mitre Peak, glacier scarred rock walls that rise 1200 meters (3937 feet) vertically from the sea and waterfalls that tumble from hanging valleys and crash into the sound far below.
After your cruise, join your light aircraft for a scenic flight from Milford Sound over the Southern Alps and back to Queenstown (weather permitting). The flight is internationally acclaimed as one of the most magnificent flights in the world, with spectacular views of the World Heritage status Fiordland National Park. Experience panoramic views of fiords, mountains, glaciers, rivers, lakes and the lush native rainforests before flying past the Sutherland Falls and over the McKinnon Pass.
Once in the air it takes only a short time to see why this region is so unique and unsurpassed by anything else. Discover the sights of some of New Zealand's untouched country as your light plane soars up high and offers a birds eye view before landing in Queenstown, where you will be transferred to your Queenstown accommodation.
