5 Day Queenstown & Milford Sound Overnight Cruise Family Getaway

5 Day Queenstown & Milford Sound Overnight Cruise Family Getaway

Experience the best of the Southern Lakes region with your family on this short break taking in Queenstown and an overnight cruise on spectacular Milford Sound.

TOUR OVERVIEW
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 and 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.

The alpine resort of Queenstown is exciting, sophisticated and fantastically scenic. Perhaps the most famous of all South Island cities, Queenstown’s pulse thumps to the beat of action, adrenalin and visual wonder. Set on the shores of Lake Wakatipu with the towering peaks of the Southern Alps in the background, this is the place that is often referred to as the ‘Adventure Capital of the World’. Alive with activity all year round, there is enough activity to keep you entertained all day and all night. Most visits to Queenstown will involve some form of outdoor adventure, as well as simply relaxing and taking in the scenery from one of the many cafés. And then as night falls it’s time to discover the town’s energetic nightlife!

Enjoy the fun and thrills of the Dart River Funyak Safari. Your adventure begins with a jet boat ride on the crystal clear, glacial fed waters of the Dart River as you journey into the enchanted wilderness of the Mt Aspiring National Park, a World Heritage listed area. Then it’s into your unique Funyak (inflatable canoe) for the fun downstream journey. Your specialist guide will point out sights and share stories of this awe-inspiring area as you explore the shimmering channels of the Dart River as well as hidden side streams, rock pools and dramatic chasms. You’ll stop along the way and enjoy a delicious wilderness buffet lunch amidst spectacular surrounds before continuing downstream to ‘Paradise’. Return to Queenstown via a back-country route through the spectacular locations and scenery that formed some of the epic backdrops for the hit-movie, ‘The Lord of the Rings’.
