  • Travel to Milford Sound with Pure Milford on a comfortable touring coach.

  • This guided tour makes the two hour journey before stopping for a rest break, and to pick up those departing Te Anau. 
  • It's a wonderful opportunity to stretch the legs, grab a coffee and use the rest room in the Gateway to Fiordland.
  • Once back on board, all phone signal is lost and the Milford highway enters Fiordland National Park via the Eglington Valley.
  • This is arguable the start of the most stunning and majestic portion of the trip, and some would say one of the world's most spectacular drives!
  • Along the way numerous stops will be made for photos and short nature walks to ensure you are getting the full Fiordland experience. 
  • Our talented driver guides will give a full commentary on local history, flora and fauna through anecdotal storytelling.
  • Arriving at Milford Sound you'll be dropped off at the Visitor Centre where you'll depart on a cruise of the fiord; the main event! 
  • The two hour cruise travels the length of the fiord to the Tasman Sea stopping by some of the outstanding nature features, waterfalls and seal colonies during the cruise.
  • Our famously friendly crew are on hand for photos, fun Fiordland facts, and you can visit the skipper in the open wheelhouse too!
  • For the ultimate in Milford Sound flightseeing, add a fly back to the trip to get a bird's eye of view of the vast Fiordland National Park.
