This full day Milford Sound private tour experience ventures deep into the place Rudyard Kipling called, “the Eighth Wonder of the World” as we explore the magnificent sheer cliffs and shimmering waters of this world-renowned location.
Your personal local guide will pick you up from your accomodation and whisk you away in the comfort of your own private Mercedes vehicle. Enjoy constantly evolving landscapes from windswept alpine plains and turquoise lakes to vast mountain peaks and lovely lakeside towns. Skip the crowds and never miss a photo opportunity with the flexibility to stop, step out of the car and breathe in the crisp mountain air.
Highlights along the way include the crystal-clear Lake Te Anau, wildflower-filled plains of the Eglinton Valley, picturesque Lake Marian and Mirror Lakes, the engineering feat that is the 1270m long Homer Tunnel and thundering waterfalls at Chasm Creek.
We take to the water for a scenic 1 hour 45-minute boat cruise to marvel at towering cliffs and peaks – including the iconic Mitre Peak that rises more than a kilometre straight out of the sea. Get up close to cascading waterfalls and vibrant rainforest, and keep an eye out for New Zealand wildlife including fur seals, dolphins or yellow crested penguins.
To ensure the most authentic experience, we travel with one of the best small boat operators in Milford Sound. This guarantees an uncrowded, comfortable cruise that enables you to get closer to nature’s wonders.
If you’re looking for the ultimate Milford Sound experience, you can fly back to Queenstown by helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft and take in the grandeur of this special landscape from above.
Our local personal guides love to tailor each tour to suit your interests, tastes and abilities. Contact us to customise your Milford Sound Tour and make your Queenstown adventure one to remember.
To save yourself some time driving back (it’s approximately 4 hours each way between Queenstown and Milford Sound) and experience the best of both worlds, we can arrange a scenic flight back to Queenstown for you in a helicopter or small plane which will have you back at your hotel at approximately 4pm.
