Itinerary

Day 1 Doubtful Sound day trip

Experience a day trip to Doubtful Sound ex Manapouri (20 minute drive from Te Anau)

Your adventure begins with a 30km boat cruise across the crystal clear waters of stunning Lake Manapouri. Dotted with bush clad islands, white sand beaches and a number of secluded coves and bays, the lake is surrounded by mountains and is a picture-perfect part of New Zealand.

Once you’ve arrived at West Arm, spend time soaking up the information on the displays at the Department of Conservation Visitor Centre. Learn about the historical and modern day workings of the power station before boarding the coach for the unforgettable drive over Wilmot Pass.

Arriving in Deep Cove, Doubtful Sound, board a spacious and well-appointed boat and enjoy up to 3 hours of leisurely cruising – allowing you to really soak up the awe-inspiring beauty of Doubtful Sound.

Lunches can be ordered for this day-trip at an additional cost.  Tea and coffee are complimentary throughout the day.

Day 2 Milford Sound Coach & Cruise

Enjoy a leisurely, small group day trip experience to the world-famous Milford Sound – once named the eighth wonder of the world.

Be picked up from Radfords on the Lake, and soak up the spectacular views along the Milford Road. The journey is just as impressive as the destination when it comes to this part of the world!

On arrival, board a modern, comfortable vessel and enjoy a boat cruise along the full length of the fiord. Then, choose to either enjoy a series of small nature walks with a guide, or a 2.5 hour hike on the Routeburn Track up to Key Summit (unguided).

Light picnic lunch is included.

Note: You have experienced two of Fiordland’s beautiful Sounds with this package – why not add Lake Te Anau? Across the lake from the charming township of Te Anau are stunning limestone caves that include Glow worms.  This is a 2 hr 15 experience that leaves a short (3 minute) walk from Radford’s.  It includes a guided tour of the cave system and a cruise across Lake Te Anau. Add this experience to your Finest of Fiordland Package from only $99.00 (dependent on departure time) per person.

Glowworms up and running again which made our stay very special. Kerri was amazing - and helped us with all our booking - nothing beats local knowledge and contact. Will definitely return."

  • "We have stayed here twice and really love it. The motel units are so clean and really spacious and the beds are very comfy. The staff are so friendly and lent us bug spray when we went on our boat ride and gloves when we went on our jet boat ride as it was cold. It is a great location and we definitely recommend it."

Why, meow, two-legged pals. 

 I’m Dexter Dude, and this is my second attempt at a short news update on Te Anau from my particular purry perspective. Because despite my small stature, and my priority being snoozing in a patch of sun most of the time, I’m actually surprisingly up-to-speed with the goings on around here.

On Saturday July 10th it sounds like the Kepler Track is going to be bustling. There’s a family-friendly Matariki Night Time Nature Walk to discover the forest after dark, and spot some of the delicious interesting creatures that live there. Registrations are required, so get in quick https://www.doc.govt.nz/news/events/regional-events/fiordland-events/booking-form-fiordland/

That’s all from me for the month. Catch you next time! 
🐾 all my fluffy love, Dexter.

Winter is officially here! And the beautiful stillness of Lake Te Anau is second to none at this time of the year. In fact, the whole Fiordland region is stunning this season; things are a little bit quieter outside of the peak spring and summer Great Walks and general exploration period, meaning you can take a moment to catch your breath and soak in the scenery. 
We’d love to host you here at Radfords on the Lake for a midwinter break. Time it with the school holidays next month to treat the kiddos to a calm, crisp Doubtful or Milford Sound experience. Or take the time to yourself – as a couple or alone – to tick this trip off your Kiwi adventure bucket list.
