Immerse yourself in the untouched wilderness of Doubtful Sound. Home to abundant wildlife, you may see bottlenose dolphins and fur seals at play, or catch a glimpse of a rare Fiordland Crested Penguin. Your excursion into the pristine fiord of Doubtful Sound begins with a cruise across Lake Manapouri to West Arm. Then, join your coach to travel the sub-alpine road through the dense rainforest. Board the catamaran Patea Explorer for a cruise through some of the fiord’s most stunning scenery. When you discover Doubtful Sound you will be struck by its silence – a silence broken only by birdsong or the rushing of a distant waterfall. Its beauty and vastness will take your breath away. Later, return to Te Anau.

Travel through Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound on one of the most scenic roads in the world. Travel through native rainforests, beech forests, alluvial flats and meadows. You’ll visit Mirror Lakes where, as the name suggests, you can see the stunning mountain scenery perfectly reflected in the waters of the lakes. Then on to the Homer Tunnel, man’s attempt to master the sheer rocky ranges, still left rough-hewn around the edges. As you emerge out the other side of the tunnel, you are presented with one of the world’s most dramatic alpine drives, down through the Cleddau Valley. Time to rest at the Chasm, where the roaring Cleddau River has carved its way through solid rock, and then it’s on to Milford Sound for your overnight cruise on the waters of this natural wonder. Cruise the full length of the Sound to the Tasman Sea, accompanied by a specialist nature guide. The style is relaxed, allowing plenty of time to view the fiord’s spectacular waterfalls, rainforests and wildlife. Anchor in a sheltered cove and explore the surrounding area in kayaks with your expert guide. Or simply relax on deck.
