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 is the closest town to Milford Sound and is known as the 'gateway to the fiords'.
Situated on the west coast of the South Island, Milford Sound is a fusion of spectacular natural features with amazing visual cues around every corner. Check out the Milford Sound waterfalls or kayak the fjords.
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.
