In summer, thousands of tourists visit Milford Sound via car, coach, helicopter and plane every day. They see only a fraction of what Milford has to offer before they head home that day. To truly experience Milford Sound visitors need to stay there.

This is the classic Milford Sound experience: a dash in and dash out with some photos experience . And do it when the crowds are at their largest. Great if you just want to ‘see’ Milford but day trippers miss out on the true Milford Sound experience.

Taking time to stay in Milford offers the visitor a chance to enjoy the majestic beauty of the sounds and the rainforest that surrounds it in quiet before and after the crowds. But more than that it gives the visitor time to truly experience a very special place...
Take the time to experience one of the walks to be enjoyed and rare wild life to be seen along the Milford Road, without the need to rush in and fit a cruise in a day. A day might not be enough to see all the road offers.
Take the time to stay with us and enjoy an early morning kayak trip or a less-crowded afternoon or morning cruise – opportunities not available if you need to get to Milford and back to Te Anau or Queenstown in one day.
Take the time to really experience Fiordland’s world-renowned combination of rainforest and alpine landscape by hiking one of the many local multi-day walks.
