Overview

On our 7 hour Milford Track Guided Walk & Scenic Cruise in Fiordland National Park, New Zealand, combine a leisurely morning guided walk on Milford track from Sandfly Point to Giant Gate Waterfall; with an afternoon scenic boat cruise on Milford Sound, where you can take the magnificent views of Mitre Peak.

Morning guided walk on the Milford Track

From Deepwater Basin in Milford Sound where your guided walk starts, take a boat ride to Sandfly Point where you set out on a leisurely walk (5.5 km or 11 km return) on a well-maintained track beside the rushing waters of Arthur River and moody Lake Ada on your way to the aptly named Giant Gate Waterfall.

The track is part of a World Heritage Area best experienced on foot – birdsong echoes throughout the forest, soaring ancient canopy trees shade the track while abundant emerald green ferns surround it. On reaching the waterfall, enjoy the view from the huge swing bridge crossing the river.

Going back, we walk the track at a relaxed pace, soaking up the atmosphere of this extraordinary forest. There are only 12 walkers in the group that 1 Trips and Tramps guide has to look after so there is plenty of opportunity to better understand the rich human heritage of the track. At the end of the walk, have your photo taken at the sign indicating the end of the track before re-joining the boat for the trip back to Milford.

Afternoon boat cruise

Soak up the majestic scenery of Milford Sound aboard Real Journey’s comfortable Scenic Boat Cruise. Take advantage of spacious decks and observation lounges built specifically to give you incredible viewing opportunities. From where you sit or stand, you’re in perfect position to admire the geological wonders that imposing waterfalls, towering cliffs, rainforest and glaciers create. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as cavorting dolphins and seals sunbathing on the rocks. As you cruise, listen to informative commentary from the friendly crew who will point out iconic sights like the Pembroke Glacier and Mitre Peak.
