The drive in your Queenstown Motorhome Rental will take about 4 hours from Queenstown to Milford Sound.
Don’t even think about the time it takes to get there, the sights and things along the road make it a special road trip. Renting a campervan in New Zealand is easy and you can stop along the way in comfort and get off the beaten track if that’s what you desire.
See ancient alpine forests, the famous Mirror Lakes and giant waterfalls. Te Anau is the gateway to the wilderness of Fiordland national park, and a great place to stop and refuel at the local cafes.
Get to Milford Sound with the view of Mitre Peak, experience silent fiords, a boat trip out into pristine waters of Milford Sound, and stay overnight if you wish.
This special place is one of the places Maori found Pounamu (Greenstone). The Maori originally called Milford Sound, Piopiotahi and gathered Pounamu from there and traded it with other tribes throughout Aotearoa.(New Zealand). The greenstone from here has a special dark green luminescence sometimes with teardrop water markings in it.
There are many day trips on the water through the Milford Sound, watch for the dolphins and see penguins, seals, and the abundant bird life as you cruise the waters of Fiordland.
The Fiordland and Milford regions offer plenty of camping grounds for your Queenstown Motorhome Rental to park in as well as the Department of Conservation providing a range of sites for you to camp in overnight so you can easily spend the days on the water.
Plan your trip to Milford Sound with the return destinations in mind. Choose from Queenstown and up to Glenorchy, one of the sites of Lord of the Rings.
