Travel in style with Altitude Tours on a small-group tour along the famous Milford Road, embark on an incredible 2-hour nature cruise and explore Milford Sound further with an overnight stay at Milford Lodge.
Our Milford Sound day tour was established in 1994 and is a top-rated small group Milford Experience. We allow our guests to escape the crowds and offer a truly unique day, showcasing this world famous region.
On this overnight experience to Milford Sound, enjoy guided commentary touring from Queenstown or Te Anau with our experienced guides. Our small group tours give our guests the ability to get to know the driver and each other, creating a more personal and memorable experience.
Once in Milford Sound, we join a stunning two hour small boat nature cruise on the fjord – see waterfalls, fur seals, penguins and occasionally dolphins. Enjoy fun and informative commentary from your nature guide, and plenty of off-the-beaten-track visits away from the crowds.
After a day of sightseeing, our guide will drop you off at Milford Sound Lodge (approx 3:30 pm) where you can relax, slow down and spend the night in the heart of Milford Sound, one of the eight wonders of the natural world. Choose your accommodation package with riverside and mountain-view chalets available.
Following a peaceful stay at Milford’s luxury accommodation, enjoy additional time to explore Milford Sound, before meeting our guide at 3:30pm and returning to Queenstown by coach, or choose to discover Milford Sound and the Southern Alps from the air with a scenic flight by fixed-wing plane or heli back to Queenstown.
We have custom made, 16 seat, glass roof Mercedes touring vehicles. This is business class travel with extended legroom, leather interior, panoramic windows for the best views, and USB charging ports onboard.
