Discover one of the jewels in the crown of New Zealand's spectacular South Island on this full day Milford Sound hiking tour with cruise. Travel along the Milford Road from Te Anau and enjoy panoramic views over the beautiful countryside. Enjoy a 2.5-hour boat cruise through the fiord and out to the Tasman Sea, and gaze over soaring clifftops and plummeting waterfalls. Afterward, choose from a series of guided walks in the area or a 2.5-hour unguided hike of the Routeburn Great Walk to Key Summit.
What to Expect
We collect you from your Te Anau accommodation, then travel along the spectacular alpine Milford Road. Your local, experienced nature guides/drivers, are eager to share their stories, knowledge and passion for the area, bringing the mysteries of Fiordland to life - all while making sure you have a fun and safe day.

On reaching Milford Sound you will join a Nature Cruise 2 hours in duration. The cruise provides excellent indoor and outdoor viewing opportunities, with plenty of time to enjoy the waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife sightings (seals, penguins and dolphins) around the fiord.

A picnic lunch is included in the cost (if you have any dietary requirements please let us know prior to day of travel so these can be catered for).

A walk in Fiordland is a must, even if it is only short so discover more with our overland tour.

Short Walks and Photo Stops - Year round you can enjoy a series of short, guided walks, with your local guide. Our National Park concession allows us to access the Gertrude Valley, Lake Gunn, and Hollyford Valley, so you can get off the beaten track and explore a range of different environments in this World Heritage Area. Plentiful opportunities are made for you to experience the natural fauna and flora with all your senses and of course to get lots of great photos. Catering for all ages and abilities, stops are made to suit people's interests and weather on the day.

Routeburn Track Key Summit Option - In summer (October to April) for the more active this is walking, hiking or in New Zealand we say 'tramping' at it's best. Ascend up the Routeburn Track enroute to Key Summit through lush beech rainforest and into the alpine environment with panoramic views of the surrounding Fiordland Mountains, alpine lakes and deep bush clad valleys. This option is unguided unless the whole group on the day takes this option.

You should contact them. I think they could accommodate your needs. You don’t have to do the Keye Sunmit hike, they might take you on a walk with photo ops.
