Remember each and every Binge on Travel trip is tailored to what you want to do and see; so get in touch and create something entirely for you.

Day 1

Home to the famous Fiords of Milford and Doubtful Sounds you will soon see why Fiordland has achieved World Heritage status.

Drive into Te Anau and make your way to the outstanding Fiordland Lodge, set in one of the most dramatic and beautiful locations in New Zealand, at the gateway to Fiordland National Park.  

Arrive in time for your included afternoon tea and join your hosts for pre-dinner canapes in the stylish lounge with its natural timber and its incredible latticework of huge log trusses and large open fireplace, you will soon feel at home.

 

In the evening you can drive only 10 minutes away to the town of Lake Te Anau where you will find a selection of restaurants, however, it may be hard not to stay and experience the lodges very own restaurant with its exclusive view across the stunning lake and surrounding mountains. 

The dining concept that prevails through the Lodge is based on the farm-to-table ideology that complements the lodge impeccably. The head chef is dedicated to sourcing the freshest of ingredients, creating relationships with local suppliers and smaller producers and saturating the dishes he creates with local Fiordland and Southland ingredients.

Your package includes 2 nights at Fiordland Lodge – Lakeview Room with Buffet Breakfast Daily

Day 2

Wake up to a spectacular sunrise over Lake Te Anau and a hearty buffet breakfast before venturing off to your included sightseeing.  

Make your way to Manapouri where you will commence your journey to Doubtful Sound.  This all starts with a cruise across Lake Manapouri before boarding your coach which takes your over Wilmot Pass and your await boat.

Time passes quickly as you drive through the rainforest of Fiordland and catch your first glimpse of the Sound. Board your vessel, the Patea Explorer, which will take you on your three hour cruise through the spectactular and pristine fiord.  Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife – including dolphins, fur seals and the rare Fiordland crested penguin.

 

This will be a day to remember! 

Returning to the lodge for a rewarding soak in the hot tub with its uninterrupted views across Lake Te Anau will be the perfect way to unwind after an unforgettable day.

Make your way to pre-dinner canapes; and tonight again my recommendation would be to dine in the exquisite lodge restaurant!

Day 4

This is personally my favourite and most memorable experience in this part of Fiordland…

Today make sure you awake early to watch the sunrise – all from the comfort of your lodge suite.  A delicious continental breakfast will be delivered to your door so you can sit back, relax and soak in the peace and tranquillity that this lodge provides. 

Make your way to the deep water basin where you are assigned your kayak (prepared with all the right gear) and taken on a guided journey across the sound.  This is the most magical way to truly appreciate these stunning surroundings.  With opportunities to spot wildlife and photograph waterfalls from this unique perspective this is an adventure not to be missed.
