Te Anau-Milford Sound+cruise (return)- Manapouri-Invercargil


Is it possible to cover the above route in one day in Oct/ Nov by driving- it is doable and comfortable with sufficient short stops to visit the attractions along the way??

It might in theory be do-able but I would not recommend it - too much for one day. Better to drive the two hours to Milford Sound early in the morning, do a cruise, then spend a leisurely time driving back again, stopping off at the various sights and short walks along the way - all this will take you most of the day.

Then the next day, head off to Manapouri - if it's the power station you want to see then you will have to take a boat trip as it is located on the west arm of Lake Manapouri. I think Real Journeys do this package. Then have a leisurely drive to Invercargill. Again, with the boat trip this will take most of the day.

Hope that helps, enjoy your trip.
