Milford Sound has been described as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’. The best known of the cluster of fiords gracing the southwest region of New Zealand’s South Island, Milford Sound will wow you with the spectacular sights. Admire the sheer cliffs of rock and forest rising out of the still-dark waters from the air, the road or on the water itself. Come and see why half a million people flock here every year with one of our Milford Sound hotels.
Milford Sound is the only fiord accessible by road, so you might as well make the most of it! Wind your way here along the stunning alpine drive from Te Anau along Milford Road. A steep and windy highway, stop along the two hour drive for lookouts and short walks with some of the most impressive scenery you’ll ever see – just remember to charge your cameras! If you’d prefer to sit back and soak up the sights, there are tonnes of bus tours around the region – and some even come with a boat trip included! Whether you take a cruise on Milford Sound or paddle your way along the calm waters in a kayak, keep your eyes peeled for waterfalls cascading down the steep mountainous slopes, dolphins diving through the water and seals lazing by the edges. Fancy a bird’s eye view of that? You’ll love a scenic flight over the sound and the dramatic landscape of Fiordland. For other ways to take in the sights, cycling and walking tracks weave their way through the region. But a real beauty is the Milford Discovery Centre and Underwater Observatory. Sure, the sights are spectacular from above, but here you can delve beneath the surface and witness the unique and beautiful marine life. If you’d prefer to get even closer and don’t mind getting wet, you also scuba dive in Milford Sound. Milford Sound is a once-in-a-lifetime experience rated up there with the world’s finest. Three-and-a-half hours from Queenstown and just over four from Wanaka, come and see why everyone raves about this natural wonder. Book your Milford Sound accommodation with us today!
