We booked an overnight dinner cruise on the Milford Wanderer and we're looking forward to some wonderful scenery. However we were surprised when the vessel dropped anchor shortly after beginning our journey and remaining there for the evening. The dinner was good and the cabins comfortable. Downside was sharing toilets and washrooms with other guests. The following morning we did... More

Many good trails and scenic stops along the way. Impressive scenery along a two lane mountain road. Its a fun road to drive, even if you're not used to the left side of the road. We departed at 7am from Te Anau and didn't return until 7pm at night. Give you're self plenty of time to explore Firordland. Milford Sound... More

The road here from Te Anau can be treacherous, so take your time getting here. We took an entire day and did numerous short walks, which are well worthwhile. Camping is available at the Milford Sound Lodge, so you can stay there and do a tour first thing in the morning. We're glad we did it that way, rather than... More

The cruise is just too short. It takes something around 40 minutes to get completed. Shows some seals and a major waterfall, but normally the weather there does not collaborate much (average rainfall around 6,000mm /year). Make sure NOT to get a coach, since the most interesting spots might be found along the road to the park itself, such as... More

Very special place, that copes with the large numbers of tour groups surprisingly well. Well worth taking a cruise along the fijord, as this shows the whole picture better than the view from the midge-infested harbour.

This has been on my bucket list for a very long time and finally I got to visit, and on a beautiful sunny February morning. Couldn't had hoped for a better day. What an amazing place to visit. Words are a little hard to find to give this little piece of paradise the right kind of review.... You simply just... More

We were fortunate to be on the 10.30 cruise before all the coach loads of Chinese tourists arrived and so had a very leisurely boarding and plenty of space on the boat. The weather was drizzly with a lot of low cloud which fortunately cleared as we cruised out to sea. The return trip was much better from a visibility... More

We travelled from Te Anau to Milford Sound by coach an enjoyable journey. We then boarded the Pride of Milford for a magical trip around the waterways.
