Milford Sound Select

Queenstown, New Zealand - View the map

Departing Queenstown at 7.15am by luxury coach for Milford Sound. This breathtaking scenic adventure starts as we head south along Lake Wakatipu, under the looming shoulders of the Remarkables Range. Beyond the rugged lake edge, the country transforms to high-country pastures surrounded by mountains, then it's down to the serenely beautiful farm country of the Northern Southland plains. Heading west towards the mountains and Te Anau we pass through some of New Zealand's most scenic farm country. Around us are clear streams and rivers, world famous for their trout fishing. At Te Anau village we stop for refreshments - looking across the lake we see the undisturbed eastern fringes of Fiordland National Park where green bush-clad valleys rise to row upon row of mountain peaks.

We recommence our journey and travel north alongside Lake Te Anau, entering the Fiordland National Park. This World Heritage area has some of the world's most spectacular and memorable scenery. This is New Zealand as you imagined it. From the Eglinton Valley with its endless golden tussock pastures, we travel into beech forests past tranquil lakes and crystal-clear rivers as we climb steadily into the very heart of the mountains. Passing through mist-covered valleys and through a huge mountain carved out of rock by ice and the elements, we reach the Homer Tunnel - the gateway to Milford Sound. Starting our descent into Milford Sound, we travel from cloud-capped forest peaks into the subtropical West Coast valleys of Milford Sound..
