Discover the magic of Milford Sound!
When it comes to the must-see places in New Zealand, chances are you’ve probably heard about Milford Sound. It’s kind of a big deal!

It’s one place we would say has to be on EVERY traveller’s bucket list, because it’s just so unique – and photos really don’t do it justice. Sounds amazing, right? Let’s get you there! There are plenty of options to choose from, so there’s definitely a tour that’s just right for you…
Day tours to Milford Sound from Queenstown
By land or by air? You decide. Either way, these tours get you there and back again in just one day.
Coach – Cruise – Coach
Relax in 5-star luxury on your plush coach and let your driver take care of the hard part, while you take in the sights! The drive into Milford Sound is famously beautiful, and your driver will provide expert commentary along the way to ensure you get the maximum enjoyment from your journey. Highlights include the Mirror Lakes (get your cameras ready) and the Homer Tunnel which passes through the heart of the Southern Alps. At Milford Sound, choose to embark on a Scenic Cruise or an Nature Cruise – both tours get you out on the water, but the Nature Cruise explores the far reaches of the Fiord and is an extended trip.
Coach – Cruise – Fly
Get the best of both worlds, as you take a plush coach ride from Queenstown to Te Anau, followed by a cruise on the water, and then top it off with a scenic flight back to Queenstown. Click here to learn more!
