Milford Sound Small Group Tour & Cruise from Queenstown or Te Anau

Join us on this fully guided, small group day tour from Queenstown or Te Anau to the world-renowned Milford Sound; the crowning jewel of Fiordland including Cruise Milford & Picnic Lunch.

Highlights of the drive include Devil Staircase, Lake Te Anau, Eglinton Valley, Mirror Lakes, Hollyford River and the truly majestic mountains of Fiordland with multiple stops along the way for photo opportunities and Kea bird spotting (the world’s only alpine parrot).

We then travel through the mind-blowing Homer Tunnel, emerging as the valley descends sharply down to Milford Sound, with its hundreds of waterfalls cascading into crystal clear waters.   

With Cruise Milford (the No. 1 Cruise in Milford Sound on TripAdvisor), you’ll be travelling on a smaller boat, which is less crowded and where the crew offer a much more informative and personal tour of Milford Sound.   You’ll be getting close to New Zealand fur seals basking on the rocks, massive rock faces rising for hundreds of metres out of the sea and see waterfalls cascade from ancient rainforest high in the mountains    

After your cruise we begin the return journey back to Queenstown or Te Anau.  At the end of the day your guide will drop you back to your Queenstown or Te Anau hotel, or you can opt to upgrade to a scenic, one way flight back from Milford instead (book optional flight during booking process).

  • Fully guided small group return tour from Queenstown or Te Anau (maximum 16 passengers)
