Milford Sound Fly Cruise Fly
- Pickup available
- Duration: 5 hours
New Zealand's breathtaking fjord is one of the world's top destinations. Rudyard Kipling once described it as the 8th Wonder of the World, and he hadn't even seen it in all the ways available to you! Which of these takes your fancy?
From Mitre Peak to the waterfalls and rainforest, a scenic cruise of the fjord is the best way to capture its magnificence on camera!
Kayak tours are great for exploring the nooks and crannies that bigger boats can't reach. Perfect for seeing dolphins, seals, and even penguins!
Milford Sound is rife with hiking trails for all ability levels, so anyone can discover its mountainous panoramas and lush vegetation for themselves!
Not the cheapest options of course, but light plane and helicopter tours reveal the time-sculpted landscape at its most awe-inspiring!
Milford Sound is arguably the most beautiful place on earth, and that's only above the water! Hire a diving instructor to help reveal the dazzling secrets beneath it!
Peak Season is around the new year when New Zealand's South Island is at its warmest. It never gets hot per se, but if your priority is avoiding the crowds and high prices then go in fall between March and May. Beware though, Milford Sound is one of the wettest inhabited places in the world, and the rain can be freezing in spring and fall, even on warm days!
Be sure to bring a good rain coat and sturdy, waterproof walking boots, even if you're not going on a hike. Remember that rain is part of the experience! Wrap up warm if you're going on a cruise. If you're not, it's worth packing a few extra layers anyway just in case the temperatures drop suddenly.
We recommend that you pack light, but bring a water bottle, protection against the sun, and most importantly, insect repellant. You should probably take your camera too!
Pick up was on time and everything went smoothly. We enjoyed every aspect of the trip. The other passengers were friendly and Andy, the driver/ host was top class. His friendly commentary ensured a good day. Small numbers made the trip even better as we felt we had a personal guide. A long day but worth it in every way and would certainly recommend using a commercial operator to do this trip from Queenstown and would certainly recommend this company.
An excellent relaxing way to see Milford Sounds and surrounding area. The boat cruise is excellent. Bus driver (guide) was very knowledgeable with the history of the area and great at engaging with all passengers. Buses are very comfortable and give you excellent views of the scenery. Highly recommended.
We thought, for us, the guide repeated herself and talked about herself too much. Just being chatty but at the beginning we thought she'd never stop. Very nice and helpful though. The lunch was good and buses comfortable and the scenery outstanding...also boat was great.
We had the most wonderful trip from Te Anau to Milford Sounds due to our driver today. This man said it all with information and humour. Our trip by boat was awesome with the most fantastic sights waterfalls like the mountains weeping.
Great bus driver. Kept us informed about history and landmarks on way to Milford. Capt did the same on boat. They put on perfect weather and even got rid of the sandflies for us. Would recommend to anyone wanting an experience.
