Milford Sound Tour Itinerary
We head south along Lake Wakatipu, under the looming shoulders of The Remarkables Range.
Beyond the rugged lake edge the country transforms to high country pastures surrounded by mountains then its down into the serenely beautiful farm country of the Northern Southland plains. Heading west towards the mountains and Te Anau we pass through some of New Zealand most scenic farm country. Around us are clear streams and rivers, world-famous for their trout fishing.
At Te Anau village we stop for refreshments, looking across the lake we see the undisturbed eastern fringes of the bush clad Fiordland National Park, where green bush clad valleys rise to row upon row of mountain peaks.
We recommence our journey and travel north alongside Lake Te Anau entering Fiordland National Park. This World Heritage area, has some of the most spectacular and memorable scenery in the world. This is New Zealand as you imagined it.
From the Eglinton Valley with its endless golden tussock pastures, we travel into beech forests, past tranquil lakes and crystal clear rivers as we climb steadily into the very heart of the mountains. Passing through mist-covered valleys, carved out by rock and ice to reach the Homer Tunnel, the gateway to Milford Sound through a huge mountain.
Starting our descent into Milford Sound we travel from cloud-capped forest peaks into the subtropical west coast valleys of Milford Sound. The sheer visual power of this place has earned its reputation as one of the seven wonders of the natural world, the road trip in is considered one of the great road trips in the world.
Here the cruise vessel awaits and it's time for another unforgettable perspective of nature at her awe-inspiring best. You can choose to have a comfortable window seat inside or stay on deck to make the most of the photo opportunities. Your Skipper will get you right up to spectacular waterfalls that cascade off the walls of the fiord, expect to see pods of dolpins dancing in the wake of the boat and seals lounging on the rocks only metres away. The boat has a bar where drinks and snacks can be purchased. Those wishing to have lunch whilst on the cruise can place an order with us when booking.
