Milford Sound is an amazing 22km fjord on the South Island. It has been voted one of the best places on Earth to visit and the Milford track is rated as one of the best walks in the World.
With over 180 days of rain every year, Milford Sound is one of the wettest places in New Zealand, this however is to the delight of visitors as it brings temporary waterfalls pouring down sheer rock faces rising 1,200 metres or more from the sea. With rain forests hanging on to the cliffs, and the seals and penguins that inhabit the area there is nowhere else like it with the accesibility that Milford has.
Originally named after Milford Haven in Wales, it has peaks as high as Mitre Peak at 1,695m and with mirror lakes and the chance to see dolphins and wales, Milford Sound will not fail to amaze.
