Fiordland's tranquil sounds and glacier-carved wilderness host some of the best walking tracks on offer. Explore the region from Milford Sound or Te Anau.
Te Anau, located on the eastern shore of Lake Te Anau is closest town to Milford Sound. Also known as the "gateway to the fiords". Find out more Fiordland and Te Anau.
Situated on the west coast of the South Island, Milford Sound is a fusion of natural features that are spectacular even in the rain. Find out how to cruise, kayak, dive or hike to Milford Sound.
At Manapouri you’re surrounded by the majesty of Fiordland on all sides. Explore the lake environment or organise an expedition to Doubtful Sound.
From Manapouri you can arrange transport to Doubtful Sound, the deepest and second longest of New Zealand's fiords.
