Sightseeing Opportunities

A coach journey offers plenty of sightseeing opportunities along the way. Coaches make stops at key scenic locations, such as the picturesque Mirror Lakes, Knobs Flat, Monkey Creek, and the Chasm. These carefully curated stops allow you to stretch your legs, snap photos, and ensure you experience the full breadth of Fiordland National Park’s majesty without any driving distractions. 

Eco-Friendly Travel

By choosing a coach, you’re contributing to a greener Milford Sound. These efficient vehicles carry multiple passengers, reducing the overall carbon footprint compared to individual cars. It’s a small but impactful step towards preserving the very beauty that draws visitors from around the world.

Travel Safely and Securely

With experienced drivers at the helm, traveling by coach is a safer option. The Milford Road can be hazardous, especially in wet or icy conditions, but coach drivers are trained to handle these situations. You can feel confident in your safety and focus on enjoying the journey.

Focus on the Adventure, Not the Parking!

Parking in Milford Sound can be challenging, especially during peak tourist seasons. With a coach tour, you bypass the parking scramble and arrive right at the entrance, ready to explore. No more circling for a spot – just hop off the coach and straight into the heart of the adventure.

A Long Day, Made Comfortable

A Milford Sound day trip is rewarding but can be long, taking four to five hours each way from Queenstown. After your cruise, you may face another lengthy drive back. However, in a coach, you can recline your seat and soak up the views, even catching a quick nap on the return journey if so desired.
