Things we love about living in Milford Sound
The Milford Sound Lodge team is a friendly, outdoor-loving and adventurous bunch; which makes sense because we live in the middle of a remote National Park! Here are some of the things our team values the most about living and working in such a unique place.
Living in Milford Sound
“Living in such a beautiful place gives new meaning to my after work runs…plus, I get to wake up every morning to the mountains. And standing under the spray of Bowen Falls is a real thrill!”
“The options for outdoor adventures are endless. I recently climbed Mitre peak – amazing! There’s nowhere else like Milford.”
“It’s awesome being surrounded by vibrant, interesting go-getters. Sometimes after work a group of us head to the tunnel pools – freezing, but an awesome end to the day.”
“My regular outdoor adventures make me so happy. It’s a special place that attracts special people. “
“Being so close to trails like the Routeburn is awesome. One of my favourite memories so far is doing the Routeburn Track with friends. It’s all really good fun.”
“The first boat cruise I ever took on Milford Sound was amazing. I love all of the hiking – Key Summit on the Routeburn and Lake Marian are amazing trails”
“Seeing the waterfalls outside my door every time it rains is a real buzz. Yes, it rains a lot here but those waterfalls definitely make it worth it!”
While we’re pretty spoilt when it comes to being able to explore all of Milford, guests are able to get a taste of what we enjoy by staying a night or two. Don’t rush off in a day trip – catch your breath, wake up to the mountains and let Milford work its magic on you too!
