Sit back, draw the curtains and have a snooze as you travel firstly to Te Anau approx 2hours after departure,  wake up and enjoy a refreshment break before making the rest of the journey through the Stunning Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound. We will treat you to uncrowded scenic photo stops and nature walks to experience the uniqueness and beauty of this stunning area as we make our way to Milford Sound.

This morning in an unforgettable Jet boat experience you’ll be transported from the sophisticated downtown area into the channels of two of New Zealand’s most scenic rivers. Across the pristine waters of Lake Wakatipu and through the tranquil beauty of the willow-lined Kawarau River, the Jet boat then speeds into the shallow, fast-moving braids of the Shotover River. Head back to the CBD where you'll have time to find lunch before challenging yourself to New Zealand's highest bungy jump! Welcome to the best thing you’ve ever done. Go full throttle with our 134m Bungy (the highest in New Zealand). Freefall for 8.5 seconds in a blitz of pure fear and adrenaline.
