FiordlandNational Park is the largest National Park in New Zealand and a World Heritage site. It’s a place where jagged peaks rise up from the water’s edge and waterfalls can be seen tumbling hundreds of meters into virgin forest. These scenic riches, combined with an abundance of wildlife such as seals, penguins and dolphins, has made Fiordland one of New Zealand’s most famous destinations.
Most cruise ships visiting Fiordland travel to the fiords of Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound or Dusky Sound allowing passengers to enjoy the varied scenery. Most cruise ship stopovers in Fiordland do not include shore excursions.
No worries! Why not stick around for a few extra days before or after your cruise and extend your New Zealand experience? Check out some ideas for pre or post cruise itineraries.
