We have spent many years in Fiordland tramping / climbing / mountaineering / kayaking and sailing. We feel we know the place pretty well so please feel free to ask us questions when you are planning your holiday to Te Anau.
It is worth checking out our very own Te Anau and Manapouri website – www.teanau.net.nz – plenty of information here!
These are the activities we recommend.
Fantastic way to see Milford Sound – get up close and personal with the wildlife! Trips for beginners to experts. If you are reasonably fit then this is definitely the best way to see Milford Sound! They can even pick you up from your holiday house!
Had a hard day out in Fiordland? Then go in and see one of the qualified massage therapists for a bit of ‘me’ time. They offer deep tissue, relaxation, foot revival and hot stone treatments. The clinic is located at Distinction Hotel & Villas on Lakefront Drive.
If you can’t go kayaking then Mitre Peak Cruises is the way to go! Small boat cruise – it is a great trip out to the Tasman Sea.
Real Journeys is a locally owned company that has guided excursions into this region for more than 50 years. They offer a variety of trips including day and overnight cruises in Milford and Doubtful Sounds, Glowworm caves out of Te Anau, and they also operate trips in Stewart Island.
An awesome way to see Doubtful Sound – small boat – very personal – the skipper even dives for crayfish for your dinner! If you love seafood then you will get plenty of it on this tour – have the chance of fishing also and get it cooked by your crew for a wonderful dinner.
They are locally owned and operated and offer fun, views and memorable experiences by horseback and quad bike in challenging and inspiring locations. A great way to see the Te Anau area.
They operate scenic jetboat tours on the Upper Waiau River which flows between Lake Te Anau and beautiful Lake Manapouri. Check out Lord of the Rings country – beautiful scenic trip for families.
Explore Fiordland’s remoteness by floatplane. Great way to see everything below. Take off and land from Lake Te Anau. They will also land on other lakes or Fiords if you are needing them for transport to get to or from a tramping track.
