Recently ranked as the world's most beautiful place, the Milford Sound is a must-do for those visiting New Zealand's South Island. The Milford Explorer departs Queenstown early and stops at the picturesque Te Anau township on the lake before heading through the Homer Tunnel into Milford Sound. Once there, you will go on an unforgettable one and a half hour boat cruise through the Milford Sound exploring soaring peaks, towering waterfalls and New Zealand nature at its best.
