The seven wonders of the world keep changing- there were the old wonders and the new wonders. The eight wonder however, has remained constant. Aptly coined by the author, Rudyard Kipling, Milford Sound is one of the most visited tourist attractions of the world. The only fiord accessible by road, you could opt to see Milford Sound by day or by night. The scenes Milford Sound will bestow on you are sure to help you seek inspiration even in the most mundane things. With tall cliffs carved out of glaciers and the river as deep as 2000 feet, the best way to experience Milford Sound is by a coach/cruise tour operated on a daily basis and highly recommended not to mention the scenic flights that will give you a bird’s eye view on one the world’s most spectacular sights.
Apart from a cruise tour, there’re a lot of other activities that speak of the heritage of Milford Sound. You could visit the underwater observatory, hike up to the mountains, check out the black corals or just go kayaking. There are a great deal of tours that have affordable offers to encompass the complete experience of Milford Sound, although you could make your own itinerary should you wish to.
