Nature Lovers Queenstown

Duration
5 Days
Prices From:
US$ 876

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.

Day 2

Lakeshore, Forest and Bird Walk

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. It combines the best of native flora and fauna with magnificent lake and mountain views. Native birds are readily seen and heard, in and around the edges of the forest.

Duration4 Hours
Day 3

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. Enjoy a sumptuous three-course buffet dinner in the dining saloon, followed by a Nature Guide presentation in the forward saloon. Beverages are available for purchase at the licensed bar.

    For the ultimate Milford Sound experience, spend the night aboard the Mariner and wake up to the dawn of a new day in one of the most beautiful places on earth. Depart from the Milford Sound wharf in the late afternoon and cruise the full length of Milford Sound accompanied by a specialist nature guide. They'll explain the history and geology of the area and be on hand to answer your questions. The cruise style is relaxed, allowing plenty of time to view the fiord's spectacular waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife - you're bound to encounter seals and if you're lucky maybe dolphin and penguins.
