If you are interested in a full featured tour that is easy on the wallet, an early start and early finish, then this Milford Sound trip is the tour for you!

JUCY Sunriser departs Queenstown at 6:00am, includes stops in Te Anau and along the Milford road for those stunning photos and incredible sightseeing, a cruise the length of Milford Sound and then get you back to Queenstown at about 5:30pm – just in time for a rest, dinner and a night out on the town.

Experience the tranquility of Lake Wakatipu in the glow of soft morning light as the coach begins its journey south along the shores of the lake and then through the mountains towards Te Anau. A stop in Te Anau for 30 minutes at about 8:15am is a perfect time to grab some breakfast and a nice cup of hot coffee.

The journey then continues towards Milford Sound, initially along the shores of Lake Te Anau and then into the magnificence of Fiordland National Park where you will be treated to splendid vistas at every turn. The coach will stop at a number of locations both on the way and way out for those memorable photos and at a couple of locations where you can stretch your legs on short nature walks.

At Milford Sound you will join a cruise aboard our modern catamaran, Maiden of Milford, for a cruise the length of Milford Sound to the Tasman Sea and back. During the cruise you will see mountains with sheer cliff faces rising from the depth below, waterfalls cascading from hanging valleys and seals lounging on rocks from right alongside the boat.

A delicious selection of Pizza Pies, Maiden Meals, snacks and drinks are available during the cruise.

Amazing Day

Don’t miss doing this trip while in Queenstown ...everything about our day was great! Worthwhile doing the sunrise tour that way you still have the afternoon and evening in Queenstown if you’re short for time and trying to pack more activities in a shorter stay. Absolutely breathtaking scenery and definitely a highlight of our time in NZ. Highly recommended!!

Unmissable.

Milford Sound is hella far from Queenstown, but unbelievably gorgeous - you have to experience this. Wayne, our bus driver, had a ton of fun facts and stories and really broke up the drive. Stop debating doing this and do this! :)
