Sometimes you see pictures or videos of faraway places and you tell yourself that they can't be real. With all of the amazing technological advances and CGI developed in movies, it is hard to trust anything these days. When it comes to pictures of the Milford Sound, you may find yourself questioning their legitimacy. How could such stunning natural beauty be real?! We know the Lord of the Rings was filmed in New Zealand, so are people just sending us pictures of a movie set? Well, rest assured. We've looked into this and we can confirm the stunning pictures you have seen of Milford Sound are not a hoax. It's time to see this striking place for yourself!

Everything will be taken care of for you with a pickup at your hotel for a quick drive to the airport to meet your pilot. You will receive a pre-flight briefing giving you details on upcoming highlights, including the famous Skippers Canyon, Donne Glacier, and the breathtaking Paradise region. While up in the air, the 35-minute flight will rush by as you stare in awe at the secluded glacier-made fjords. After circling through the Sound, you will return to the most inland juncture, landing at its inconspicuous airport before being dropped off for your catamaran cruise.

This additional vantage point of being out on the water will allow you to truly appreciate the enormity of your surroundings. The cruise will cover the full length of the 12 KM fjord that provides views of everything from waterfalls taller than Niagra Falls to a wide array of native flora and fauna that thrive within this environment. Step out on the outdoor viewing deck with your complimentary tea or coffee for the best views. Make sure you tuck away that camera for at least a little while to really appreciate this "hard to believe" location. Your 35-minute return flight will bring your views full circle before you're dropped back off at your hotel.

No green screens involved!

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
