Your journey from Queenstown takes you along the edge of Lake Wakatipu beneath the rugged Remarkables to Te Anau for a morning tea break (own expense). You'll then enter the Fiordland National Park, pausing at the Mirror Lakes before passing through the Hollyford Valley. The road then climbs to enter the Homer Tunnel, emerging above the CleddauValley before descending to Milford Sound.

Carved by a massive glacier in the last ice age, Milford Sound is one of the most treasured regions of the World Heritage Fiordland National Park. The best way to check out the heart-stopping, pristine scenery, towering peaks, waterfalls and marine and bird life is aboard this Milford Sound cruise. While cruising, you'll enjoy a full commentary about the rich history and environment of Milford Sound.

Traveler Reviews

This tour leaves Queenstown just after 7am and arrives back maybe around 4 or 5pm? It is an all day tour but completely worth every minute, and this trip is an absolute MUST DO when in South Island.
The bus, provided by Great Sights, had a glass ceiling for the roof which allowed for full viewing of the mountain peaks above, and the driver stops at the most strategic points to allow for the best views where available on the very windy road.
The driver provided great commentary from the history about the lake, the Maoris, native forests, to the hanging glaciers, and the geography of the land.
In my opinion, just the experience of getting OUT to Milford sound once you enter Fiordland National Park was quite possibly the highlight of the trip.
From seeing the forests, to the super blue lakes, the beech trees that have this unique ability to cling to the sides of the almost vertical cliffs, to even being about to stop at one point and drink fresh mountain water right out of the stream, everything about this tour was extraordinary.
A great day, great tour, and one that I highly recommend to everyone who is visiting Queenstown.
