Nature Lovers Queenstown

Duration
5 Days
Prices From:
US$ 790

Beautiful scenery and nature abounds in Queenstown. Enjoy a pleasant nature walk followed by an overnight cruise that will take you the full length of Milford Sound to the Tasman Sea.


Queenstown puts you in the heart of the South Island’s mountain landscape. A half day nature walk (tailored to your fitness level) takes you to see lush beach forests and beautiful Lake Wakatipu, with spectacular views of the Remarkables. A highlight of your journey is a trip to Milford Sound, a breathtaking, 16km long fjord carved by glaciers out to the Tasman Sea. A nature guide will accompany you, and an overnight stay anchored in Harrison’s Cove gives you the opportunity to kayak or explore the shoreline.


 

At Goway we are experts at designing personalized itineraries to suit your special interests, tastes and budget. Let us arrange your ultimate travel experience today.

The 'Lakeshore Forest & Bird' guided walk is a unique nature interpretative experience taken at a leisurely pace through native beech forest. Enjoy morning or afternoon tea or coffee on the lakeshore to the sounds of native birdcalls and surrounded by majestic mountains. The track is good but uneven and winds around the lakeshore with the option of a steeper climb to a lookout with magnificent views in all directions.

Milford Mariner Overnight

On boarding your luxury coach in Queenstown, travel along the shores of Lake Wakatipu and through the rolling countryside to Te Anau. After a short break, the coach continues along the spectacular alpine route of the Milford Road through impressive, awe-inspiring scenery. There is time for photo stops and short walks along the way. Considered one of the most beautiful drives in the world, experience this journey in luxury and comfort in a 'state of the art' coach. Your friendly coach drivers provide detailed commentaries throughout the trip. Upon arrival at Milford Sound, passengers board the Milford Mariner for the overnight cruise.

Enjoy a full length cruise of the fiord out to the Tasman Sea. The flexible nature of the cruise means there is ample time to look out for wildlife such as seals, penguins and dolphins. The Nature Guide ensures an immersive experience as guests learn all about the history and natural environment of the fiord. Go for a paddle in a kayak, or hop on board a tender craft to explore the fiord up close. The boat will anchor in the shelter of Harrison Cove overnight.
