Milford Sound Full-Day Tour from Te Anau

Highlights

  • Walk to The Chasm and the Mirror Lakes en route

  • Be mesmerized by UNESCO-listed Fiordland National Park

  • Buffet lunch, live commentary, and Te Anau transport included

Summary

Board your panoramic coach upon hotel pickup in Te Anau, referred to as the ‘Gateway to Fiordland.’ Your full-day tour includes a majestic Milford Sound cruise within the UNESCO-listed Fiordland National Park.  En route to the fiord, your driver-guide motors past the ancient beech forest of the Eglington Valley, pausing at the Mirror Lakes for a leg stretch and photo op. Continuing on through the Upper Hollyford Valley, you’ll be mesmerized by Christie Falls before entering the Homer Tunnel, drilled through the solid mountain rock.  Brace yourself for the grandeur of the Cleddau Valley, where you’ll follow a footbridge over the Cleddau River to the Chasm to view the river’s turbulent whirlpools before descending into Milford Sound. From your cruise boat, indulge in the splendor of your surroundings as you glide past waterfalls that splash down vertical, glacier-carved rock walls. Hear commentary about natural wonders such as the postcard-perfect Mitre Peak, which rises 5,551 feet (1,692 meters) from the water. Don’t miss the wildlife such as New Zealand fur seals, bottlenose dolphins, and the rare Fiordland penguin.  Gourmet buffet lunch is included on board the cruise, before you re-board your coach for the return journey to Te Anau.
