MILFORD SOUND NATURE CRUISE
The day trip to Milford Sound on board new, glass-roof coaches connecting with spacious, purpose-built catamarans is a fully seamless experience. Board the coach in Queenstown and travel alongside Lake Wakatipu and then through farming countryside to Te Anau where there will be a short rest stop. From Te Anau, the overland journey to Milford Sound is a showcase of sheer mountains and towering cliffs, rugged valleys and native rain forest surrounded by teeming waterfalls and glacial lakes. The premium glass-roof coaches offer reclining seats, multi-lingual commentary, additional legroom and are fitted with WIFI and USB ports. Experienced coach drivers tailor each journey to ensure the best photo stops are included for short walks and photo opportunities along the way.
On arrival, board a vessel for an extended and leisurely cruise on a purpose-built, day cruise vessel with a two hour duration and English only commentary. Cruise the full length of the fiord on a small catamaran with comfortable indoor seating and tall windows for panoramic viewing of spectacular Milford Sound. With a flexible and relaxed itinerary, enjoy a large and wide open outdoor, upper level deck for excellent wildlife viewing including seals, dolphins and penguins when in season. A specialist Nature Guide shares their local knowledge with lively and informative commentary while roaming the vessel, and the wheelhouse is open to join and speak with the skipper. Complimentary tea and coffee is provided on the cruise. Following the cruise, return to Queenstown by coach.
RYDGES LAKELAND RESORT QUEENSTOWN
Rydges Lakeland Resort Queenstown is located on the shores of stunning Lake Wakatipu, boasting unmatched views across the water to some of the most majestic scenery in New Zealand. This Queenstown accommodation is just a five minute walk from the centre of this exciting town, and caters for visitors, sporting enthusiasts and conference groups.
MILFORD FLY/CRUISE/FLY - OPTIONAL ADD ON for $374 per person
Milford Sound is an area of extraordinary beauty. It offers a majestic fiord, dramatic and awe-inspiring scenery and prolific flora and fauna. Although the flight to and from Milford Sound has regularly been described as the most stunning part of our tour options, combining this with a Milford cruise on the fiord happens to be the most popular option.
Your pilot will give a thorough pre-flight briefing on the route and scenic highlights likely to be encountered. These include the famous Skippers Canyon, the Paradise region (recently made popular as film locations for Lord of the Rings/Hobbit Trilogies), and the Donne glacier among many other awe-inspiring features. Your 35 minute flight concludes with an over flight of the fiord of Milford Sound, prior to landing.
The second half of the adventure begins in Milford Sound, where your pilot personally escorts you to the boat docks to board the “Sprit of Milford” to enjoy your Milford Sound Nature Cruise. The “Spirit of Milford” catamaran explores nooks and crannies along the edge of the fiord, nudging into sheer rock faces to examine flora and fauna in detail.
Following your Milford Sound cruise you return flight takes in many of the pristine alpine lakes and waterfalls that Fiordland National Park is recognised for, including the Sutherland Falls which span 580m (1900ft). Flight time is another 35 minutes, with a total trip time of approximately 4 hours. After enjoying your Scenic Flight back from Milford Sound landing back in Queenstown we will return you to your accommodation to complete the journey.
