Milford Sound Overnight

Stay longer and explore Milford Sound further by extending your Number 1-rated Small Group Milford Sound Experience with an overnight stay at Milford Sound Lodge. 

Start your overnight experience with pick up from your Queenstown accommodation or a central Te Anau location in one of our premium vehicles. Travel in comfort and style in a Mercedes van fully equipped with panoramic windows for superior viewing with complimentary wifi, bottled water and videos onboard so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the stunning scenery. 

Journey through the Fiordland National Park where you will see spectacular sights en route and plenty of off-the-beaten track locations away from the crowds. Upon arrival in Milford Sound experience a stunning two hour small nature cruise on the fjord – see waterfalls, fur seals and occasionally dolphins. Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch (optional $20pp extra – add at checkout) as well as enjoying lots of fun and informative commentary from your local guide. 

After a day of sightseeing, our guide will drop you off at Milford Sound Lodge where you can relax, slow down and spend the night in the heart of Milford Sound, one of the eight wonders of the natural world. Choose your accommodation package with riverside and mountain view chalets available. 

Following a peaceful stay at Milford’s luxury accommodation, explore Milford Sound further with a cruise, guided kayaking and underwater observatory adventure with Southern Discoveries or a guided half day walk with Trips & Tramps (additional costs apply – add at checkout).
