On the west coast of the South Island you’ll find the jaw-dropping scenery of the Fiordland National Park. Home to Doubtful and Milford Sounds, these stunning fiords were carved by glaciers during the ice ages and are best explored by boat.

The fiord’s cliffs, clad in dense forest, rise vertically from the dark water and are breath-taking in any weather. When it rains, as it often does, the waterfalls cascading into the fiords multiply and are even more incredible – some have a drop of over 1000 metres!
Take a full day tour or over-night cruise to admire this spectacular scenery – thanks to the dark skies the stars at night are unbelievable. Doubtful Sound is larger but more remote as it is only accessible via a cruise across Lake Manapouri, followed by a drive across Wilmot Pass. Milford Sound is a 2-hour drive from Te Anau, so is more accessible and popular.
Whilst you enjoy your cruise, don’t just look up at the scenery above you, look down too as you might be lucky enough to spot fur seals, bottlenose dolphins and the rare Fiordland crested penguins!
If you enjoy hiking, then the Milford Track winds its way through lush rain-forest giving you views across the mountains, fiords and waterfalls and you can take a boat trip for the final part to Milford Sound Wharf. Sea-Kayaking and diving are also available for the more adventurous!

Fabulous service. I rang to ask about our short break to Istanbul and it was booked for us within the hour. You can’t get better service than that. Thank you Dave FeltonPosted 9 hours ago
Kelly arranged my recently booked multi centre holiday, having used eShores on a couple of occasions previous the usual high standards remain! They get an understanding of you requirements, pull together a proposed itinerary, and then happily amend/ provide alternative costings for different hotels/ flights as required once you get in to the detail of what you want (easier to do with their proposed itinerary!). Great service, and at a good cost!Posted 17 hours ago

Our holiday when we were able to travel was fantastic exceeding our expectations ,and we feel certain that we will be using eShores for our next trip .Posted 1 week ago
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at the Habtoor Grand Resort in Dubai - all organised by Kadie. The location of this hotel is at the end of the beach, near to the Sky Diving school, and the new Marina. It's also close to The Walk which has many shops and restaurants. Staff and service at the hotel were 5* and we would reccommend the upgrade to Club Rooms. We have travelled several times with eShores to different regions all of which were organised by Kadie. From our initial enquiry we are always given options on where to stay, activities and excursions and any potential offers that are available. The service provided by Kadie and eShores is exemplary and we have never had an issue using them. Looking forward to our next adventure to Australia - organised by Kadie of course.Posted 1 week ago
I can’t rate eShores enough and Andy in particular. Not only did he find us the best package for the best value but he was also very supportive and reassuring when I needed to contact him before and even during the trip with a couple of questions. Everything was organised like clockwork and took all the stress out. Next time I won’t bother shopping around and will go directly to eShores.Posted 1 week ago
