The road to Milford is one of New Zealand’s most scenic drives. It can be a challenging drive, so if you prefer to sit back and relax, book a coach tour. The advantage is you get to hear local stories and enjoy special stops along the way.

The first part is relatively mild farmland, then you’ll ease into beech forest near the entrance to the Fiordland National Park. Look for the Mirror Lakes, which offer amazing reflective views on a clear day. The rough hewn Homer Tunnel brings you into Milford Sound, an amazing 15km-long fiord dominated by Mitre Peak.

A cruise on Milford Sound will be an essential component of your time in Fiordland; you can choose either a day trip or an overnight cruise to really get amongst the beauty of the place. Tall waterfalls, vertical rock faces and seals are some of the things you’ll remember. The underwater observatory is an option with most cruises.

If you opt for a day cruise, head back to Te Anau to spend the night; it has a wide range of accommodation and restaurants on offer.
