  • Picnic 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. We will provide you with a yummy picnic lunch.

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.

Great Deal!

It was a very looong day but really worth it! Pradeep (coach driver) was approachable and knowledgable. He made jokes so the ride wasn’t boring. We upgraded our picnic lunch to buffet lunch and it didn’t disappoint! Though it was raining during the cruise, we still enjoyed.

Entertaining, Informative & Comfortable

We booked this trip at the last minute and I was initially worried that the coach didn’t have an onboard toilet as the ad stated however, we had plenty of stops. Benjamin (or Ben for short) was incredibly knowledgeable and had a very humorous s to use with his commentary and stories. Learnt heaps, laughed heaps & the Southern Explorer boat was roomy, comfortable and again, the skipper gave a great commentary. This Kiwi & her Welshman husband were wowed at the beauty and fabulous experience!

5 stars

We went to Milford Sound 1st week of March 2020, and eventhough there was a flood last February it was still beautiful and aptly named the 8th wonder of tht world, we had a great time, Brad our driver is very informative and entertaining, highly recommended to go to this tour when in Queenstown.
