Amazing Milford Sound Day Tour

A day excursion to one of the world's greatest natural wonders. A vast, remote wilderness of white snow-capped mountains, glacial lakes and valleys, fiords, waterfalls and dense rainforests. Enjoy a spectacular day in the Fiordland World Heritage Park culminating with a cruise of famous Milford Sound.

Amazing Milford Sound Day Tour

This one day tour to Milford Sound is a "must see" on any visitors itinerary and one not to miss.

Situated in the breath-taking Fiordland National Park it's easy to see why this area gained World Heritage status by the United Nations in 1986. Powerful and extraordinarily beautiful no matter the weather, this fiord deserves its reputation as one of the worlds most spectacular fiords.

Leaving Queenstown, you follow state highway 6 South East, around the banks of stunning Lake Wakatipu. You stop in Te Anau for morning tea (own cost) before continuing along Milford Road enjoying the natural beauty and spectacular scenery this area is renowned for.

Continue your journey along the Milford Road into Fiordland, through scenes of natural beauty that have remained unchanged for many years. With the glass-roofed coach you'll be able to gaze up at the amazing rocky mountains above. Be mesmerised by the Mirror Lakes, where on a clear day you will see the reflection of the mountains on the water's surface. Quench your thirst at Monkey Creek, where you can drink pristine glacial water straight from the stream - nature at its purest!

On arrival into Milford Sound you join a small boutique boat and cruise the fiord. With glaciated mountains, stunning waterfalls and beautiful rainforest - not to mention the friendly wildlife there is something to see with every turn of your head.

At the end of the cruise re-join your coach for your journey back to Queenstown.

    I took a day tour from Queenstown to Milford Sound, and found Grayline excellent. Our driver, Eric, couldn’t have been friendlier and obviously knew his stuff about the area he was taking us through. Also, my hotel pickup was spot on time. Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Thank you.
    Me and my daughter went to Milford sound on Gray line last week. We had a good time with the luxury was raining the whole day however there was a lot of waterfalls due to the same reason.

    My daughter’s first time in Milford she was amazed. The Driver Greg gave a good commentary explaining the road and tunnel and Manuka tree. It was enjoyable trip overall. I can recommend this trip to anyone.
