Milford Sound Day Tours

Beautiful Milford Sound is New Zealand’s best known fiord, and the only one that can be reached by road. This pristine natural attraction is part of the World Heritage Fiordland National Park, in the south west of the South Island, and is famed for its pristine natural beauty and remote atmosphere. Māori are believed to have discovered Milford Sound more than 1,000 years ago, returning seasonally to collect the prized pounamu (greenstone). The fiord extends 15km inland from the wild Tasman Sea and is regularly visited by wildlife including penguins, seals and dolphins. Visit Milford Sound on a GreatSights sightseeing tour and experience a world of cascading waterfalls, sheer rock faces and dense rainforest.

Your sightseeing tour to Milford Sound is made even more enjoyable by our glass-roofed coaches. These provide spectacular panoramic views as you travel along the Milford Road – one of the world’s most scenic roads – and through the Homer Tunnel, before arriving for your Milford Sound cruise. Enjoy views of iconic Mitre Peak from the head of the sound. This striking mountain rises 1,692 metres from the south shore and is named for its resemblance to a bishop’s mitre (headdress).

This tour currently operates on Fridays and Saturdays. From 13 August tours will operate four days per week (Friday – Monday). From 17 September – 18 October tours will run daily.
