Enjoy a taste of luxury with a premium locally run Milford Sound expedition, designed to maximize your experience as you embark on a breath-taking scenic adventure to discover New Zealand’s own, Milford Sound!

Highlights

  • Explore stunning local scenery with comfortable relaxed travel on a luxury coach
  • Premium Milford Sound Cruise on a spacious modern vessel
  • Plenty of time for perfect photograph opportunities of this natural wonder
  • Buffet lunch included

Get ready for a breath-taking adventure as you discover some of New Zealand’s most stunning locations including Milford Sound, with a long-standing experienced team of local experts who deliver exceptional service and know the area like the back of their hand!

This epic journey begins in the heart of Queenstown. If this is your departure point you will be collected from one of our two central meeting points, either Queenstown i-Site or Frankton Bus Shelter to board our sleek and comfortable coach, specifically designed to capture the most of the surrounding views, and fitted with toilets for your convenience. Get your camera ready as we head south along Lake Wakatipu with the stunning Remarkables Range setting the backdrop for your journey.

The ever-changing scenery will have you in awe. Just beyond the beautiful rugged lake edge is New Zealand’s most scenic farmland. Its high country pastures are surrounded by looming mountains and dotted with clear rivers and streams, which are known for their trout fishing.

At Te Anau, we'll enjoy some delicious light refreshments before jumping back on board and getting ready to see some of the most spectacular and memorable scenery in the world. We will travel north alongside Lake Te Anau entering the bush-clad unspoiled Fiordland National Park. This is New Zealand as you imagined it!

As we continue driving, you will see it all - from golden tussock pastures and beech forests to the crystal clear reflective lakes. We'll steadily climb into the heart of the mountains past mist-covered valleys before reaching the gateway to Milford Sound - the Homer Tunnel.

Upon arriving at your cruise vessel, you will see why Milford has been regarded as the eighth wonder of the world. This is Mother Nature at her finest. Jump on board and choose either a comfortable window seat or stay close to nature by standing on the deck. Spectacular powerful waterfalls cascade off the walls of the fiord and your skipper will get you right up close. Make sure to look out for pods of dolphins too!

As we cruise, you'll have plenty of time to sit back and relax or get those perfect shots, with a delicious buffet lunch provided.

Once the cruise has come to an end, jump back on your comfortable coach for a relaxing journey back to Queenstown where you can reflect on your amazing day and the memories created that will last a lifetime.

well worth the money

I had a great experience overall. My only gripe is that "Milford sound select" is not a separate company, we were taken by southern discoveries bus and staff. The bus driver didn't even recognize the name Milford sound select. When we tried to board the bus we were told to go to the southern discoveries office and collect our tickets. Our tickets said bus number 1 but the bus driver told us to go to bus number 3. Once seated in bus 3, the driver didn't talk over the intercom system or address all the passengers for the first 15 mins so that was weird. After this rocky start, everything else was great! The picnic lunch was very good and had plenty of food - chicken sandwich, chips, fruit and some other snacks. The cruise was amazing too! So overall I recommend this tour but definitely not for those looking for a small group tour!

Perfect day out

It's a long but lovely day out. Coach is very comfortable and driver is well knowledged. There's is many stops on a way to sound and cruise is about 2 hours. You get to go under the waterfall if you wish. If you are choosing between Doubtful and Milford then I highly recommend Doubtful, route to the Milford is more scenic but sound itself is not as impressive as Doubtful.
