Full description
Enjoy a later pickup time than most Milford Sound day trips, there'll be no need to rush your breakfast before joining the glass-roof bus for a magical journey into Fiordland National Park. Board the bus, and marvel at some of the world’s most magnificent scenery from the large coach windows and glass-roof.

Pick up a delicious picnic lunch in Te Anau before embarking on one of New Zealand's most epic journeys. Your friendly coach drivers will provide wonderful commentary throughout and stop for scenic photo and short walk opportunities. The crowds will have rushed ahead, leaving a magnificent Fiordland landscape that you won't have to share.

At Milford Sound, board a premium glass-roof catamaran, the 'Gem of the Sound', for the scenic cruise of a lifetime. Marvel at waterfalls, wildlife, and rainforest in one of the most stunning places on earth from three decks with great scenic viewing inside and out. Soak in all the breathtaking scenery with glass-roofs and HD cameras projecting live, outdoor footage onto TV screens throughout the vessel.
