This spectacular cycling and hiking adventure provides an ideal opportunity to experience the natural wonders of Fiordland and the enchanting Milford Sound. Nowhere else in New Zealand do the mountains rise up out of the water, rich rain-forests cling to sheer rock faces or waterfalls crash hundreds of metres to the sea below than in our gorgeous Sound.

Your journey begins in Queenstown, where you will embark on this amazing journey towards Milford Sound with a morning kayak on the crystal blue waters of Lake Wakatipu, enjoy walking along the famous Kepler and Routeburn tracks and cycle through Fiordland National Parks' iconic beech forests and superb mountain scenery along the way. In Milford Sound you will board your comfortable floating hotel to explore the magic of this area, with options to swim or kayak, before pedalling around Te Anau and the hidden Mavora Lakes site featured in the Lord of the Rings. This sensational journey concludes with a tour of a high country sheep station, afternoon tea and a boat transfer across Lake Wakatipu back to Queenstown.
