Departing Queenstown the journey begins with a stunning ride between the Remarkable mountain range and shores of Lake Wakatipu with views across the water to the rugged Eyre Mountains beyond. After the small township of Kingston at the end of the lake we follow a broad valley south until we turn west towards Te Anau at the end of the Eyre Mountains.
The landscape changes markedly here as the highway follows the Southland syncline, a colossal fold in the earth's surface. This is heartland sheep, cattle and deer farming country bordered by the Eyre Mountains on the right and the hills of the White Hill wind farm on the left. The landscapes changes once again nearing Te Anau with views towards the granite mountains of Fiordland National Park.
After a refreshment stop in Te Anau the journey continues northward towards Milford Sound along the eastern shores of Lake Te Anau. The Milford highway enters Fiordland National Park via the Eglington Valley and arguable the start of the most stunning and majestic portion of the trip. Some would say this is one of the world's most spectacular drives.
Along the way numerous stops will be made for photos and short nature walks. Arriving at Milford Sound we'll drop you off at the JUCY Cruize counter where you'll depart on a cruise of Milford Sound that travels the length of the fiord to the Tasman Sea stopping by some of the outstanding nature features, waterfalls and seal colonies during the cruise.
