  • Day 03 - Queenstown / Te Anau - Fiordland Lodge

    Check-out in the morning after breakfast and drive to Te Anau (175 km / 2 h 20 m).  Check-in to Fiordland Lodge.  Then travel by helicopter over lakes, beech forest and alpine area to Luxmore Hut.  From this Department of Conservation Hut, explore the alpine tussock fields and enjoy a picnic lunch with panoramic views of the surrounding Fiordland Mountains.  Then hike down the mountain on the well formed Kepler Track.  The track descends through mountain and silver beech forest, and passes under towering limestone bluffs to the sandy beach of Brod Bay (approx 3 hours walking).  Here a boat will pick you up to cross the lake back to the lodge.

  • Day 04 - Fiordland

    Morning pick-up from the lodge and travel along the spectacular Milford Road to Milford Sound.  Join a Nature Cruise on the Sound, up to the Tasman Sea.  The cruise provides excellent viewing opportunities and plenty of time to view waterfalls, rainforest, mountains and wildlife.  After the cruise, enjoy a series of nature walks with the guide in a range of different environments.  For a longer hike option, follow the clearly marked track for a 2.5 hour walk to Key Summit on the Routeburn Track.  This walk ascends up through lush beech rainforest and into the alpine environment.  Return on the Milford Road to the lodge.

  • Day 05 - Fiordland

    Today is a more challenging tramp to Lake Marian.  This morning begin with a spectacular scenic drive along the Milford Road to the Lower Hollyford. There are opportunities for short nature walks and photographic stops along the way.  The hike starts with a walk alongside a series of waterfalls, then steepens and becomes rocky underfoot as it ascends through a lush forest of fuchsia, ribbonwood and beech trees.  Stop for photographs, bird-watching and enjoying the scenery are made along the way.  Arrive at Lake Marian after walking for 2-3 hours.  This alpine lake is situated in a hanging valley surrounded by steep, snow clad mountains.  As weather permits, enjoy a picnic lunch at this inspirational location and relax in the magnificent alpine amphitheatre before descending back down the track to the Hollyford Road and returning to the lodge by coach.

  • Day 06 - Fiordland

    Today is a free day at the lodge.  Consider one of the many optional tours available; but if you find the choices overwhelming, our suggestion would be:

    Dusky & Doubtful Sound Heli Tour  $770 per person

    Dusky Sound is the largest and most spectacular of the fiords, but the least accessible.  Not a problem by helicopter!  A landing is made at Mt Pender to view this area encompassing 365 islands; the helicopter is shut down so that you can experience the beauty of solitude of this special area.  Then overfly 3 more fiords before descending Crooked Arm into Doubtful Sound.  Flying up this Fiord we detour into a unique hanging valley known as Campbell’s Kingdom, complete with its own lake & waterfall.  The return journey overflies the Main Divide of the Southern Alps with a second landing at Mt Kidd, a remote alpine location with dramatic views.
