Day by Day Tour Itinerary
On arrival make your way to the Novotel Lakeside, on the shores of Lake Wakatipu. The rest of your day is at leisure to explore.
Early this morning you will be collected from your accommodation and taken to Milford Sound by coach for your overnight cruise. An overnight cruise on the Milford Mariner is the ultimate dinner, bed and breakfast experience. Cruise the full length of Milford Sound to the Tasman Sea accompanied by a specialist nature guide.
The cruise style is relaxed, allowing plenty of time to view the fiord’s spectacular waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife. The Milford Mariner then anchors in a sheltered cove, where you can join the nature guide to explore in the vessel’s tender craft (small boat) and kayaks. Or, if you prefer, you can simply relax on deck.
As evening falls, enjoy a lavish carvery buffet in the dining saloon. Then relax in the company of fellow travellers or indulge in some star-gazing before retiring to your private cabin. In the morning, enjoy a hearty breakfast before heading back out to the Tasman Sea (weather permitting) and exploring more of the fiord.
Retrace your steps back to Queenstown by coach. The alpine resort town of Queenstown is sophisticated and fantastically scenic. Its lake and mountain landscape is suited to almost any kind of adventure.
Optional scenic flights are available.
At leisure for last minute shopping or sightseeing before making your way to airport and departing for your next destination.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
You won’t pay more by booking your short break holiday with Relaxing Journeys. We have access to discounted industry rates and special deals, only available to those in the travel trade. So the amount we make on each short break, is the difference between these rates and retail rates that you would pay if you booked it all yourself. Of course, you also get peace of mind that all is organised professionally and you get our fantastic service thrown in! There will be occasions where a property may release a ‘walk in’ deal that may better our quote, however our prices are the best available at the time of booking.
Your dedicated tour consultant will email you through a quote. If it looks good, then full payment is required to confirm the booking (within 45 days) or a deposit of $100 per person is required outside this period. This must be paid by credit card (Visa or Mastercard only). We do not charge credit card fees on our short break packages. If the properties listed in the holiday package are unavailable at this time, we will provide you with alternatives until you are happy.
We welcome bookings from anywhere in the world. You can see how much each package is using our currency converter on this page. Only the New Zealand Dollar (NZ$) prices on this site are accurate. Prices in other currencies have been converted for your convenience, and are there to help you to compare to your own currency. All of our New Zealand tours are charged in New Zealand Dollars. Your credit card company will convert the amount paid from your currency into NZD automatically for you.
Some short break packages do not include (or may not require) a hire car, or internal flights. Relaxing Journeys can organise these extras for you and include them in your quote if you wish – or you can just book the short break ‘as is’, and organise everything else yourself. These extras can be requested after choosing your date and clicking ‘Confirm Availability’ on the right of this page.
The cost of getting to & from the airport to your accommodation is generally not included, although on some occasions it is, in which case we have specifcally mentioned it in the itinerary. There are always plenty of taxis or shuttles waiting at the airport. You also have the option in most cases to catch a bus into the city centres.
Once your deposit has been paid and you have received your deposit confirmation, we will organise your short break and when completed (normally within 48 hours) we will email you confirmation. When you pay your balance (45 days before the start date) we will email you a ‘Short Break Voucher’ shortly after along with your arrival information and everything else you need. Print this off and take it with you to NZ.

Relaxing Journeys would have already booked and confirmed all the components of your holiday and we will have to cancel everything and adhere to each suppliers cancellation policy.
