A day out on the breathtaking Milford Sound Coach and Cruise offers the perfect mix of sightseeing, team bonding, solo reflection, and reconnection with nature. After witnessing the wonders of remote Fiordland up close, far away from any corporate responsibilities and stresses, your team can return to the job with a heightened sense of peace and productivity.
A rugged and secluded fjord may not be the traditional office get-together, but here’s why it’s the best…
About Milford Sound
Located in Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound is considered the eighth wonder of the world and one of the wettest places in the world. Carved by massive glacial shifts during the last Ice Age, the area’s distinctive U-shaped fiords are on the bucket list of every South Island visitor. The unique landscape is best known for its dramatic granite cliffs, reaching heights of over 1,000 metres, and huge number of waterfalls that constantly change with the frequent rainfall. With a destination this memorable, your work Christmas party is sure to be as well.
Stress-free group transport
Leave the transportation logistics to us! The Coach and Cruise tour option includes all transport you’ll need for the day once leaving Central Queenstown, ensuring your entire team travels comfortably and conveniently. Our spacious coaches accommodate groups of up to 48 people, with additional coaches available for larger teams. Throughout the journey, your team will be treated to breathtaking views through full-length windows and a glass ceiling, while our passionate drivers provide fun and informative commentary.
Unforgettable Nature Cruise
Exploring Milford Sound by water is truly like tiptoeing through a new untouched world. Under the care of your knowledgeable captain and crew, your group will spot many of the fjord’s main features; Mitre Peak, Hanging Garden, the Four Sisters, and the Tasman Sea.
Cruise goers are also steered into an adventurous close up encounter with the giant 155m Stirling Falls. As glacier water thunders from above and sprays the viewing deck, the office will be the farthest thing from anyone’s mind.
Milford Sound is also a sanctuary of biodiversity, making it the best place to spot unique plant species, seals, dolphins, birdlife, and, occasionally rare Fiordland crested penguins in their natural habitat.
Don’t forget to turn the camera around too. All of these pristine views make a great backdrop for team photos and a new LinkedIn headshot.
