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.

  • We stayed here for only one night prior to our overnight cruise on Doubtful Sound, which is a shame because it was one of the best places we stayed in on our three-week trip around New Zealand, and a longer stay would have been most welcome. Room 12 was large, and beautifully appointed with an extremely comfy bed. Kerri on reception was excellent; efficient and very welcoming about things to do in Te Anau.

  • My husband and I spent four glorious nights at Redford’s on the Lake…. What a slice of heaven, with the lake right in front of our eyes…. Kerri was the most gracious, helpful and conscientious host. She knows all about the area, had great restaurant recommendations, where to grocery shop, and what to see and do. And always with a smile. We felt like we were visiting someone’s luxurious vacation home with beautiful linens, lush curtains, several types of pillows for comfort and wallpaper and lots of great amenities. Good/strong Wi-Fi, super comfortable king-size bed, anything, and everything you could imagine you need as a traveller was provided including use of their washer and dryer facility, including laundry detergent,…always a bonus! We hiked three strenuous hikes three days in a row and coming home to the large Jacuzzi bathtub in our bathroom was heaven. Great for sore muscles. Our one-bedroom suite was spacious and luxurious. If we ever get back to Lake Teanau, we will definitely be coming back to Redford’s on the Lake. It’s a five-star plus accommodation with the most gracious owner and staff.

  • We truly enjoyed our stay at Radford’s on the Lake. Our room was very clean and spacious with a wonderful view of the lake and easy parking. The location was perfect with an easy stroll to town for any restaurants or activities as well as a short drive to Milford Sound. However, the best aspect was the service provided by Kerri. She gave us wonderful recommendations to make the most of our visit and even loaned my husband a raincoat when he forgot his. She truly made us feel welcome.

  • Superbly appointed accommodation and lovely view of the lake. All the staff were great too! Fairly short and level walk into town so easy to get to cafes, restaurants and shops. Plenty of parking at the Radfords and in town. Te Anau is a great location to head off into Fjordland - less than an hour to the reserve and only 90 minutes to Milford Sound.

  • We stayed 2 nights in January 2024. What a nice place to stay! A very warm welcome from Kerri, and an introduction to our room. The room was with 2 bedrooms, we travelled as family, nice and clean. The kitchenette was with things we needed for preparing breakfast. Good and comfortable beds, a nice view to the Lake Te Anau. We asked for recommended restaurants and Kerri was nice to show us places for dinner and drew on a map where to go. Excellent service and great hospitality from the management. Our best recommendations to Radfords on the Lake.

  • It was the cutest little “motel” we have stayed. The room was beautiful overlooking the lake. We had the first-floor room and had a great view. The name motel only applies to the fact that we could see where we parked our car. However, it felt more luxurious when you got inside. Comfortable bed, clean linens and a very cute little kitchen. The lady at the front desk was wonderful and gave us plenty of Great tips on where to eat. We hope to visit again one day and stay again

We received this wonderful review recently from a lovely guest while we (Kerri and Steve) were away on holiday. With Kylie in charge in our absence, we always know Radfords is in good hands. Kylie looks after Radfords like it's her own and we couldn't appreciate her more for her unwavering dedication and hard work. We love having Kylie on our team and our guests love her too.
Last month we celebrated the amazing Jeanette, an integral member of our team for the last 10 years and long term friend of Kerri's. A team player with the highest standards and an all round bloody good person. Radfords on the Lake would not be the same without her. Jeanette keeps the team in high spirits with her great sense of humour, we're a better team with her on it. Never one to say no to a glass or two of Merlot with some chips and kiwi onion dip after a long day. Jeanette, we want to say a huge thank you for all your hard work over the years, we appreciate you so much. We look forward to many more years together at Radfords on the Lake.
As the sun goes down on another year, we would like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you too all our lovely guests who visited us over the last year. We love sharing  beautiful Te Anau with so many people from near and far. We can't wait to welcome many more visitors in 2024. 

Wishing you all a happy and healthy new from Kerri, Steve, Shelley, Katie and all the team at Radfords on the Lake.
From the Radfords on the Lake family to yours, we wish you a very Merry Christmas 🎅🏽🤶🏼🎄🍾
If you are visiting Te Anau this summer make sure to add a trip on @fiordlandhistoriccruises to your bucket list. Enjoy a leisurely cruise across the south fiord of lake Te Anau into beautiful untouched wilderness. We can help you make a booking before you arrive so you don't miss out.

Throwback Thursday! Reminiscing on a great night at the @hospitalitynz Awards for Excellence 2023 back in June. While we didn't win on the night, we were super proud to be a finalist alongside some fantastic motels. And it's always fun to get dressed up in the big city and celebrate our great industry with all our industry friends.
