Fiordland has a great range of activities to offer anyone from adventure seeker to the luxury traveller.
After you have taken in Te Anau, why not take the time to explore Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound.
Operating since October 2004 the award winning Fiordland Cinema and Wine bar has been architecturally designed with innovative interiors by Vesta. The Cinema was specially constructed to house regular screenings of the locally filmed movie ”Ata Whenua”-Shadowland.
Fiordland on Film – Ata Whenua will take you on an unforgettable journey. Fly through the Fiordland World Heritage Area and experience the most awe-inspiring landscapes on earth from one of our wide comfortable seats. Mysterious, evocative, exhilarating and utterly spectacular. A must see: “possibly the best thing I did in NZ” NJ Weller (UK). In addition to the daily screenings of Ata Whenua new main stream movies and art house releases are screened within weekly updated schedules, with all projection from a state of the art digital projector for the best image quality.
Fish Jet - A unique Te Anau activity combining fishing, jet boating, adventure and adrenaline…
Relax as you drift down the majestic Waiau River, spotting and fishing for some of the best rainbow trout New Zealand has to offer. Enjoy the thrill of speeding back up the river through the stunning & remote Fiordland National Park.
Half day trips - offering an opportunity to fish the length of the Upper Waiau and take in the beautiful sites.
Day long trips - offering plenty of opportunity to explore the river’s many attractions and a BBQ lunch of locally-sourced crayfish and venison.
Experience a mysterious underground world of rushing water before drifting in silent darkness beneath the luminous shimmer of thousands of glowworms.
Your trip to the Te Anau Glowworm Caves begins with a cruise to the western shores of Lake Te Anau on one of our purpose-built scenic cruise vessels. This underground world is astonishingly beautiful. By geological standards the caves are very young (12,000 years) and are still being carved out by the force of the river that flows through them. The result is a twisting network of limestone passages filled with sculpted rock, whirlpools and a roaring underground waterfall.
Jet boat down the Waiau River with Fiordland Jet to the deserted shores of Lake Manapouri – named NZ’s most beautiful lake – and walk in lush beech forest among Fiordland National Park. Travel through spectacular scenes from Lord of the Rings; see trout in crystal-clear waters; yet take time along the way to learn about the area and its rich history – all while enjoying the innate fun a jet boat has to offer – speed and spins! With a laid-back kiwi style, this tour is all about the people, the scenery and having FUN!
