Milford Sound Exploring by Boat

Milford Sound & Fiordland National Park Information

Planning a trip to Milford Sound? If you are visiting the South Island of New Zealand, you should definitely include Milford on your itinerary… And plan to stay more than a day — you simply can’t experience all that Milford has to offer in a day trip.

Milford Sound and the surrounding Fiordland National Park has much more to offer than probably the best scenery you will ever see.  The area is rich in flora and fauna and a product of a dramatic pre-history and fascinating geological story that formed today’s stunning landscape. A challenging landscape that has combined with a sometimes harsh climate to influence a human history characterised by change and failed attempts to master the beautiful environment.
