Experience Milford Sound and Fiordland National Park on a full-day scenic tour from Te Anau that explores some of the South Island’s most spectacular places. Sightseeing stops enable you to hike, snap photos, and enjoy gorgeous views as you travel through Eglinton Valley, the Homer Tunnel, and Cleddau Valley before an unforgettable cruise along Milford Sound’s soaring cliffs and waterfalls. Barbecue lunch before or during the cruise is included.
What to Expect
Leave Te Anau on a road that follows Lake Te Anau toward Fiordland National Park, where you make the first stop of the day to snap some photos of beautiful Eglinton Valley. Since many Milford Sound tours continue straight to the fjord, you enjoy crowd-free views of the scenic places you pass en route, from the Homer Tunnel to the Hollyford River to Cleddau Valley.

Upon arrival at Milford Sound, board a boat for a sightseeing cruise with soaring peaks and waterfalls on either side. Watch for native seals, penguins, and dolphins in the water—even whales can swim into this deep waterway.

Depending on the season, a barbecue lunch of lamb kebabs, chicken kebabs, sausages, salads, fresh bread, and juice is served on the way to Milford Sound or on the boat, with vegetarian options available upon request.
