Tour Details

Book a great value Milford Sound day tour from Queenstown or Te Anau and see one of the world's most spectacular natural attractions. Cruise the fiord and experience this dramatically beautiful landscape with its towering mountain peaks, gushing waterfalls, ink-dark water and sheer cliffs covered in lush native rainforest.

Our limited availability InterCity Milford Sound tours start from just $125 and depart daily on modern, comfortable buses with air conditioning and free wifi. All tours include a Milford Sound cruise and return travel from Queenstown or Te Anau to Milford Sound and return.

Enjoy commentary from your experienced local driver guide as you depart Queenstown and journey along the shores of Lake Wakatipu, through Te Anau (where you’ll stop for a morning tea break) and into stunning Fiordland National Park.

The road to Milford Sound is just as impressive as the destination – travel past snowy mountaintops, along glacier valleys and through the Homer Tunnel, with plenty of opportunities to stop and take photos along the way. Admire the picture-perfect reflections at Mirror Lakes and walk over footbridges above gushing waterfalls at The Chasm.

After your scenic bus trip, join the crew of Southern Discoveries for a 2 hour scenic cruise on Milford Sound. You'll see breathtaking scenery including waterfalls, lush rainforest and steep rocky cliffs as you travel along the fiord towards the Tasman Sea. Dolphins are regularly spotted playing in the wake of the boats, and seals and penguins are also frequent visitors.

During your cruise the crew will entertain you with commentary on the natural history and wildlife of the area, and the large top deck allows amazing viewing and panoramic photo opportunities. Large covered seating areas and viewing windows are located on other levels. Translation sheets are provided in Japanese, German, French, Spanish, Korean and Mandarin.
