Milford Sound - Review

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.

Milford Sound, Queenstown Reviews

  • A terrific experience to sail into this place on a cruise ship. Spectacular scenery and natural features abound. Early morning low cloud added to the atmosphere and when this cleared a totally new perspective was given.

  • Lovely experience. Small waterfalls. Take some snacks. Saw dolphins scores of them. The hills and waterside was amazing. U could see some birds and seals too. Must do trip in nz

  • 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.

  • This place is amazing, you should visit and get experience there. About 2 hours journey, many interesting spots. There are some tour operators there too, just make sure if you booked the ticket, you must be in ther terminal at least half an hour before. Otherwise you can buy tickets directly there.

  • Milford Sound is breathtakingly beautiful and nature at it's finest. We cruised through here on the Ovation of the Seas on a picture perfect sunny day. The cruise director gave a running commentary of the history, the depth, who and what lives in this sound and many other details. We saw the Bowen Falls and enjoyed the experience of the cruise ship turning 720 degrees so that we were able to view the sounds from all angles. Absolutely amazing.....
