Enjoy a leisurely small group day excursion to Milford Sound from Te Anau, including a Boat Cruise along the full length of the fiord. You then be able to complete a series of short walks with your experienced nature guide. Includes picnic lunch and wilderness tea break.
From Te Anau travel along the spectacular Milford Road with local, experienced nature guides eager to share their stories, knowledge and passion for the area, bringing the mysteries of Fiordland to life. On reaching Milford Sound, join a large Boat Cruise for a nature focused cruise on the Milford Sound taking you out to the Tasman Sea. The cruise provides excellent opportunities to view the waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife. There is also the option to visit the fascinating Milford Discovery Centre (additional cost). On completion of the cruise, passengers re-group and begin their overland walking tour. Your nature guide will take you on a series of walks in a range of spectacular environments. The National Park concession allows you to access Gertrude Valley, Lake Gunn, Marian Gantry, the historic Hollyford Museum and Humbolt Falls, alongside the more visited stops. The day can be tailored to the weather and seasonal highlights to ensure more enjoyment from the wilderness and wildlife in this World Heritage Area. During the short walks, you'll stop for a wilderness tea-break with complimentary billy tea, coffee and home style biscuits. The groups then reunite before continuing along the Milford Road back to Te Anau.
