This is a very long driving day, so should only be done if you're happy spending a long time on the road, and ideally are able to share the driving with a companion.
Take the stunning route through giant glacier carved valleys to visit one of the most scenic spots in New Zealand, Milford Sound. Be awed and energised by the scenic beauty of the marvellous vistas here, particularly of Mitre Peak, which soars straight from the sea like a jagged tooth. Consider a scenic cruise to explore the stunning fiord. In the afternoon, make your way back to Te Anau and to Queenstown, New Zealand's renowned beautiful hub of activity and adventure.
