Tour Details

If Milford Sound is the eighth wonder of the world, the road to Milford is surely the ninth. The best way to experience both is by travelling on a coach and cruise day trip from Queenstown or Te Anau.


  • Fresh food cooked on the cruise every morning
  • International buffet menu
  • Halal friendly
  • Special Vegetarian Indian box available at no additional charge!

Milford Sound

Milford Sound is approximately 5 hours driver from QUEENSTOWN. 2.5 hour driver from TE ANAU or 45 minute flight from Queenstown.

The overland journey to Milford Sound is a jaw-dropping showcase of sheer mountains and towering cliffs, rugged valleys and native rain forest, surrounded by spectacular waterfalls and glacial lakes. We own a fleet of purpose-built, glass-roof coaches that connect seamlessly to our Milford Sound cruises providing the widest range of day trip options from Queenstown and Te Anau. Our coach drivers tailor each journey to ensure the best photo stops are included to suit the season and weather.

On the way to Milford Sound, you will have a lot of photo opportunities! Mirror Lakes, Eglinton Valley, Monkey Creek, Homer Tunnel and The Chasm.
