Beautiful, amazing, majestic, pristine and magical. These are just some of the words that you hear people mention when they talk about Milford Sound, New Zealand. And once you’ve been there you know why. Milford Sound is one of those places, like the Grand Canyon in the USA. You know it’s going to be awesome, you hear about how awesome but until you’ve been there yourself and have experienced it you just don’t know how AWESOME it really is!
Getting to Milford Sound is half the adventure. Yes it’s a long trip, but in my opinion the drive there is just as beautiful and jaw dropping as the actual cruise itself. Weather you drive there in your own wheels or you jump on board one of the many tour buses operating from both Queenstown or Te Anau, you will enjoy amazing scenery on your way down and the photo opportunities are truly endless! Once you arrive into Milford and jump onto your boat of choice you will taken on a jaw-dropping trip around the fiord. Waterfalls, wildlife, sheer rock faces and more. I promise!
