Today you'll visit the world-famous Milford Sound, described by Rudyard Kipling as the 'eighth wonder of the world'. You can choose to either self-drive or go by coach to Milford Sound.
Here, glacier-carved cliffs soar out of inky black waters and waterfalls tumble down rocks hundreds of metres high. Take a boat cruise for the best experience. Don't forget your camera, and make sure to look out for the pods of dolphins that frequent the waters of the fiord. After your cruise, return to Queenstown or spend a night in Te Anau.
Caution: If you choose to self-drive, be sure to give yourself plenty of time as conditions can vary greatly on this route, particularly in winter.
