Highlights
    What to Expect
    After a convenient hotel pickup by mini-coach, depart Te Anau in the morning for the drive to Milford Sound. Stop with your small group at Mirror Lakes for a photo break, and hear interesting narration about the regional flora and fauna from your guide en route to Fiordland National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
    On arrival, join other travelers for a Milford Sound cruise before the crowds descend upon this natural wonder. Peer through the boat’s large viewing windows inside the cabin, or get fresh air on the spacious outdoor decks. Your skipper provides illuminating commentary while several naturalists onboard point out marine life as you search the icy waters for penguins, bottlenose dolphins, and New Zealand fur seals.
    Focus your eye on cascading waterfalls and the 5,550-foot-tall (1,692-meter) Mitre Peak before your return trip to Te Anau. Have lunch and stop to explore several scenic spots on foot, such as the Chasm nature trail, Lake Gunn and the stunning Eglinton Valley, before drop-off at your hotel.
