Milford Sound is the most famous natural wonder of South Island. Known as Piopiotahi to the Maori, this stunning fiord was carved by an ancient glacier over millions of years. Scenic’s leisurely Milford Mariner cruise will give you ample time to soak in the pristine environment, as you capture the reflections of the surrounding mountains and forest, on the glasslike waters and drift past picturesque waterfalls. To fully appreciate the beauty of the eighth wonder of the world, your cruise
docks overnight in Milford Sound – a Scenic Special Stay
– so that you can explore by kayaks as well as wake up to its breathtaking beauty.
Later, take an optional helicopter* flight over Franz Josef or Fox Glacier and experience the wonder of a landing on an actual glacier. For a truly otherworldly experience, Scenic will take also you to Te Anau caves to view the large colonies of glow-worms, shimmering in the darkness.
