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.

  • "From the easy parking to the super warm welcome from Kerri & the brilliant night's sleep - what's not to like at Radfords? Great location - 5 mins walk to the main street, 10-12 mins at most to the farthest restaurant - 2 mins to the seaplane, 5 mins to the heliport & 30 seconds to the lakeside - so well positioned. Rooms large, fast Wifi, did I say comfy bed? Large bathrooms & well-equipped kitchenettes & spotlessly clean rooms - each had a lovely spot to sit outside for an afternoon wine. Kerri is a hive of information about the local sights & eats - upon her recommendation, we ate at Redcliff & Fat Duck - both fantastic. If you have time do the Heli-Hike with Southern Lakes Heli to the Kepler Track - all-day activity but SO worth it."

  • "What a magical stay... the best accommodation and most impressive host during our two-week SI road trip. Kerri was so warm, and helpful and gave us the best tips for our stay (Redcliff's Restaurant and the Cruise Milford experiences were amazing). The location of the property was perfect, with views of the lake and the rooms were beautiful... exactly how they look in the photos. Stunningly fitted out, comfortable bed and the added benefit of great kitchenette facilities to prepare your own breakfast, if preferred. We, (two couples) would definitely return."

  • "Fantastic time staying at Radfords, the service was outstanding, great recommendations, and beautiful rooms. We are a family of 5 and it was a nice home away from home for our 2 night stay, wish we could have stayed longer."

  • "Kerri the owner was very warm, friendly & super helpful. She made us welcome right from the start! The rooms were very spacious & the decor was lovely. The beds were super comfy. We had a superb view over-looking the lake. The motels were within easy walking g distance to town & the restaurants etc. We would definitely recommend this place to stay."

We were stoked to be able to host these lovely ladies @brodiejeankane @jokane80 over the weekend while Brodie knocked the Luxmore Grunt off! Great to see all their stories out and about enjoying what Te Anau has to offer and we can’t wait to host them again to share more.

Just like you, we love our stunning Fiordland environment 💚 Caring for our local wildlife is super important for us - did you know we’re proud supporters of the Antipodes Island Parakeet, also known as the Kākāriki?

Thanks to fantastic conservation efforts from our friends at Te Anau Bird Sanctuary (only a 20 minute walk from us), these special birds are being protected from extinction.
It’s that time of the year to vote for Bird of the Year for 2021 - so jump on with us and vote and if you can make a donation towards their great efforts.
