What to Expect
Explore the awe-inspiring and unforgettable landscapes of Milford Sound on this scenic tour. Discover the stunning Fiordland National Park, a must-see for any visitor to New Zealand, where you will see the fiord’s best features, from its dramatic mountains, steep cliffs, and dense rainforest to its valleys, meandering rivers, and cascading waterfalls.

Journey across the Southern Alps and travel through the 1.2km Homer Tunnel, where you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery as you exit the tunnel’s darkness. Continue on to Eglinton Valley, where ancient alpine forests and gushing waterfalls abound. Admire the Earl Mountains and their reflections at the stunning Mirror Lakes, then walk across the Chasm, looking down at the unique rock formations that the Cleddau River has scoured over the years.

At the deep waters of Milford Sound, board your 1 hour and 45 minute Southern Discoveries Scenic Cruise. See the wonders of Mitre Peak, the iconic mountain that looms just over a mile high above the water alongside glacier-carved rock walls and waterfalls that tumble through valleys and crash into the sea.

After your cruise you will return to Queenstown by a 34-40 minute scenic flight, departing from the Milford Sound airstrip located in the heart of the Sound. Enjoy spectacular views as you fly out of Milford Sound and through a landscape of unbelievable grandeur and beauty. The route of the return flight will depend on the weather conditions but you can be assured of breathtaking views in every direction.
