Situated on the west coast of the South Island, Milford Sound is a fusion of spectacular natural features with amazing visual cues around every corner.

Described by Rudyard Kipling as the 'eighth wonder of the world', Milford Sound was carved by glaciers during the ice ages. Breathtaking in any weather, the fiord's cliffs rise vertically from the dark waters, mountain peaks scrape the sky and waterfalls cascade downwards?from as high as 1000 metres.?When it rains in Milford Sound, and it often does, those waterfalls multiply with magnificent effect.?

Boat?cruises?– during the day or overnight –?are an excellent way to experience the Sound. Adventurous types might also like to head out sea kayaking, diving or flightseeing. To learn more about the local marine life, visit the underwater observatory at Harrison Cove and marvel at the black coral, 11-legged sea stars and delicate anemones.

If you enjoy hiking or trekking, the Milford Track?is for you. The track begins at the northern end of Lake Te Anau?and winds its way through some of the world’s most vivid wilderness. Your journey ends with a boat trip from Sandfly Point to the Milford Sound wharf.?

Many people visit the Sound on a day trip from Te Anau?or Queenstown. The small village of Milford Sound also has limited places to stay so pre-booking is advised or choose from the many options in Te Anau or Manapouri. If you're hungry there's?a?café in the village, or you can enjoy food and drink onboard your boat cruise.
