Milford sound could be one of the most beautiful places imaginable. You can get there by driving through a remarkable road with a giant one way tunnel, or... you can fly in. It’s truly remote but one journey you will not regret taking. Remarkable!
Amazing stuff..... I took this on my way in by plane. Early morning or late afternoon trips are awesome.
Stunning natural views that will leave you breathless. We did a tour via cruise and helicopter and was able to see the beauty of the sound by both land and air. Highly recommend this to anyone looking to appreciate the sheer beauty of what the Sound has to offer.
Worth the drive down. Saw a few seals and penguins. One of a kind. Take the morning cruise. Cheaper and less people
It's a great fjord. It's also called the 8th wonder of the world. Several birds and animals can be found in the region. A lot of sea lions rest on a rock in the sound. A lot of cruises offer a great view of the sound. Southern Discoveries are a very good cruise organiser. There are several snow capped peaks and waterfalls which comprise the great view.
