Milford Sound Fiordland 

The scenic beauty of Milford Sound is hard to surpass. Rudyard Kipling called Milford Sound the "eight wonder of the world." Milford Sound is home to New Zealand's most famous hiking track, the Milford Track, and many iconic New Zealand photographic images are from Milford Sound.

Milford Sound is part of the Fiordland National Park which is a World Heritage Area and the largest National Park in New Zealand. Milford Sound is 2 hours and 30 minutes drive from Te Anau the largest town and regional centre of Fiordland, or 5 hours from Queenstown. The Milford Road from Te Anau to Milford Sound through the Homer Tunnel (1.2 km long) is one of the world's finest alpine drives. It is also possible to fly into Milford Sound.

Milford Sound Attractions & Activities
