Milford Sound Private Tour
Duration: Full day from Queenstown
Distance: 4-hour drive each way, return flight available
If a Milford Sound private tour isn’t on your bucket list yet, it should be! Milford Sound is one of the most well-known New Zealand attractions for good reason. It sits deeply within Fiordland National Park, which is part of the Te Wahipounamu World Heritage site on the remote southwest coast of New Zealand’s South Island. Technically a fiord that stretches approximately 16km from the head of the fiord to the open sea, it’s the only fiord in the country that can be accessed by road. When most people think of Milford Sound, they picture Mitre Peak, a picture-perfect icon that rises sharply and towers 1,692 metres above sea level.
Of all the Milford Sound day tours available, hands down the best way to see Milford Sound is with your own personal guide. I’ll whisk you away from the long queues and buses into my comfortable Landrover Discovery where we can stop wherever and whenever you like on our way to this incredible World Heritage area. You’ll have plenty of time to appreciate the views on a walk along the way, on an optional Milford Sound boat cruise, or one of several other options you’ll find in Fiordland Things to Do.
Milford Sound Scenic Flight
Then if you’d like to save yourself some time driving back (it’s about 4 hours each way between Queenstown and Milford Sound) I can arrange a scenic flight home for you in a light plane or helicopter.
