Your Journey

This is your opportunity to experience a half-day guided walk on the world-famous Milford Track. We partner with Trips & Tramps for your guided half-day walk which includes the notorious Sandfly Point at the end of the track and the beautiful Giant’s Gate waterfall.

Departing from the Milford Sound terminal, a short boat ride across Deep Water Basin to Sandfly Point is the end of the Milford Track but the start of your journey. The cascading Arthur River and Lake Ada are just some of the scenic spots before you reach Giant’s Gate, a spectacular waterfall which is best viewed from the large swing bridge spanning the river. Our group sizes are small allowing you to soak up the fascinating interpretations of the unique native flora and fauna in this magical environment.

The scenic wonders will not stop there as you will then experience a two-hour cruise along the fiord, providing you with the perfect way to experience Milford Sound by land and sea. As you make your way out to the Tasman Sea, you will see towering peaks, sheer cliffs, cascading waterfalls and lush rainforest. Evoke your five senses as you take in the sights of this majestic region, feel the spray of Fairy Falls and listen to the sound of nature thriving in its habitat. Keep an eye out for local wildlife that can be found in the fiord, with New Zealand fur seals and dolphins spotted regularly, while occasionally the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin makes an appearance when in season.
