Milford Sound & Fiordland

Visiting Milford Sound & Fiordland

Introduction

The Fiordland region is one of New Zealand's most iconic landscapes, yet remains largely undeveloped despite its fame.

Rocky peaks, waterfalls and fjords stretch for many miles and together they comprise one of the country's most pristine wilderness areas. Immersing yourself in these unforgettable surroundings - whether by foot on the celebrated Milford Track or on board an overnight or daytime cruise - is a defining Kiwi experience.
