Tour Itinerary

Journey along the edge of Lake Wakatipu, through Kingston and Mossburn, to Te Anau. 

"The Key", an aptly named village, opens the door to the Fiordland National Park.  Continue on through the Eglington Valley to the Mirror Lakes, before following the "Avenue of the Disappearing Mountain", past Cascade Creek and Lake Gunn and on to The Divide. 

Proceed through the Hollyford Valley to the Homer Tunnel, a man-made tunnel cut out of the rock wall, to emerge into the Cleddau Valley, and on to Milford Sound. Join your Milford Sound Cruise and explore the wonder of this majestic fiord.  After your cruise, return to Queenstown on a scenic flight, taking in Sandfly Point, Sutherland Falls, Lake Quill, the Southern Alps, Lake Wakatipu, Cecil Peak, and Walter Peak.

  • 5We had a spectacular day! Our Tour Guide was very informative on the bus. The cruise was beautiful (would probably not do the lunch option if we did it again - as missed the first 1/2 of cruise waiting for lunch and then eating). Glad we did the plane flight back - views were amazing.

  • 5Wonderful trip to Milford Sound - fantastic scenery. Flight back to Queenstown was spectacular. Couple of minor irritations with Great Sights - difficult to contact. The number provided didn't work from a UK mobile. They also wouldn't let you eat on the coach which is ridiculous and a first in 30+ years of travelling.
