Milford Sound – One of the Great New Zealand Experiences
Milford Sound is a world-famous spectacular fiord that flows into the Tasman Sea on
New Zealand’s West Coast, and is encompassed within the World Heritage Fiordland National Park in the south-west corner of the country.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy an unforgettable journey into Milford Sound. Nestled within
the World Heritage Fiordland National Park, this region is rich with dense rainforest,
lakes, and waterfalls cascading down from rugged mountain peaks. Enjoy fantastic
opportunitites to observe wildlife in their natural habitat.
You may stay at the Milford Hotel. You may take a daytime or overnight cruise on the Sound. You will see the St. Anne Point lighthouse and Copper Point, where the wind funnels through with gusts of up to 100 mph. Be sure to include a visit to the Milford Deep Water Underwater Observatory, more than 30 feet below the surface.
Milford Sound is perhaps the most popular natural attraction in New Zealand, and that is
saying a lot ! A world-acclaimed destination for all visitors. For this reason we have
included it as one of the elements in our “Wine – Milford Sound Trail” excursion.
