Trek through some of the South Island’s most inspiring landscapes on a day trip from Te Anau to the Milford Sound. The remote mountains and lakes can be intimidating to navigate on your own, but expert nature guides show you the best trails, views, and waterfalls all in one day on a well-paced series of walks and a scenic picnic stop. An included boat cruise through a fjord and into the Tasman Sea offers yet another perspective.

An amazing day in an amazing place with our very informative and friendly guide Geoff. He has a wealth of local knowledge and engaged with the group with great kindness, inclusion and good humour. The boat cruise was spectacular with an added bonus of dolphin alongside the boat.
