Getting there

The journey to Milford Sound is just as spectacular as the destination itself, whether you travel by road or by air.

Milford Sound is around 5-6 hours (one-way) from Queenstown and around 3 hours from Te Anau by road. We have specially designed luxury coaches that can get you there from both these towns or if you prefer we can get you there on one of our scenic flights. You could also drive yourself to Milford.

The best way to enjoy the Milford Road, one of the world’s finest alpine roads without having to worry about the often tricky driving conditions, is on one of our coaches. Our experienced coach drivers know all the right places to stop and take in the magnificent views of the Milford Road. Along the way, they will provide you with informative commentary about the region, its history and natural surroundings.

Our flights and coaches connect with our cruises. We can also organise helicopter flight connections if preferred.

If you decide to self-drive, do overnight in Te Anau as the trip to Milford and back from Queenstown can get very tiring.  Also, leave plenty of time to stop at the many scenic trails and lookouts along the way.
