Milford Sound

Milford Sound is a world-renowned natural wonder. Nowhere else in Fiordland do the mountains stand so tall, straight out of the sea. Luxuriant rainforest clings to sheer rock walls and waterfalls tumble hundreds of metres to the sea below.

In Maori legend, this landscape was created by Tu Te Raki Whanoa, a godly figure who carved the fiords with a magical adze. Without doubt, Milford Sound (Piopiotahi) is his finest creation. Whatever the fiord’s mood – brooding and wet, or tranquil in the sunshine – it will inspire you.

Real Journeys provides coach and flight connections from Queenstown and coach connections from Te Anau, connecting to our range of Milford Sound cruises to suit different preferences.

Daytime Cruises:
  Nature Cruises (2 hrs - 2hrs 30): Relaxed, extended cruise with specialist nature guides on board.
  Scenic Cruises (1 hr 40): Cruise the fiord on a modern, spacious vessel.
Overnight Cruises:

An overnight cruise in Milford Sound is the ultimate dinner, bed and breakfast experience. Explore the fiord in the quiet of the late afternoon and venture out in our kayaks or small craft. In the morning, awake to the beauty of the fiord.
