Day 2: Queenstown – Doubtful Sound – Te Anau

Immerse yourself in the vast and untouched wilderness of Doubtful Sound. It will take your breath away. Home to abundant wildlife you may see bottlenose dolphins and fur seals at play, or catch a glimpse of a rare Fiordland Crested Penguin. Your excursion into the pristine fiord of Doubtful Sound begins with a cruise across Lake Manapouri to West Arm. Then join your coach to travel the sub-alpine road through the dense rainforest. Board the catamaran Patea Explorer for a cruise through some of the fiord's most stunning scenery. When you discover Doubtful Sound you will be struck by its silence – a silence broken only by birdsong or the rushing of a distant waterfall. Its beauty and vastness will take your breath away. Later, return to Te Anau. (B, L)
