What you can expect

No trip to the South Island of New Zealand would be complete without paying a visit to the breathtaking fjords. Book this Milford Sound day tour from Queenstown to enjoy return transfers and a 1-hour 45-min nature boat cruise to see cascading waterfalls, abundant marine life and rainforest clad cliffs collide.

The iconic Milford Sound is likely among the first images that pops into your head when you think of New Zealand and this Milford Sound day tour will whisk you away from Queenstown to experience the incredible spectacle all in one day. Altitude Tours will transfer you in style in our premium 16-seater Mercedes vans, ensuring you more leg room and escaping the crowds on our small group tour. Once you arrive at the fjord, you’ll join a 1-hour 45-min nature boat cruise getting you so close to the waterfalls you may even get a little bit wet. Keep an eye out for the New Zealand Fur Seals and Dolphins that are often spotted throughout the nature cruise. Return transfers back to Queenstown will deliver you back to your hotel just in time for dinner.
