Small-Group Milford Sound Day Trip and Cruise from Te Anau
From $97.54
Overview
Escape the crowds of Milford Sound as you cruise through the popular glacier-carved fjord on a full-day excursion, round-trip from Te Anau. The 1.5-hour Milford Sound morning boat trip glides past stunning sights like Mitre Peak, situated in the UNESCO-listed Fiordland National Park. En route, stop for short walks at scenic spots like Mirror Lakes and the Chasm. Enjoy small-group transport by mini-coach, limited to 33 people, which ensures personalized attention from your guide. Includes lunch plus hotel pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect
After a convenient hotel pickup by mini-coach, depart Te Anau in the morning for the 2.5-hour drive to Milford Sound. Stop with your small group at Mirror Lakes for a photo break, and hear interesting narration about the regional flora and fauna from your guide en route to the World Heritage–listed Fiordland National Park.

On arrival, join other travelers for a 1.5-hour Milford Sound cruise before the crowds descend upon this Eighth Wonder of the World. Peer through the boat’s large viewing windows inside the cabin, or get fresh air on the spacious outdoor decks. Your skipper provides illuminating commentary while several naturalists on board point out marine life as you search the icy waters for penguins, bottlenose dolphins and New Zealand fur seals.

Focus your eye on cascading waterfalls and the 5,550-foot-tall (1,692-meter) Mitre Peak before your return trip to Te Anau. You’ll have lunch and stop to explore several scenic spots on foot, such as the Chasm nature trail, Lake Gunn and the stunning Eglinton Valley, before drop-off at your hotel.
