Fiordland & Milford Sound Travel Guide

milford sound mitre peak

Some of New Zealand’s wildest and most dramatic scenery can be found in Fiordland, from waterfalls that tumble through dense forests of beech into deep ice carved fiords, to shimmering lakes and small towns cradled amongst magnificent mountains. Fiordland has 14 fiords carved through steep mountain ranges that span some 215 kilometres of coastline, and of these Doubtful and Milford Sound are the most accessible to the visitor. Fiordland also offers many hiking tracks from the popular Milford Track to the lesser-known Kepler Track, Routeburn Track and Hollyford Track, as well as numerous short walks. We take four days to explore Fiordland’s pristine wilderness. Bob fulfills his wish to hike on the Kepler Track, we take a cruise on Milford Sound, visit the Te Anau Glow-worm Caves, discover tranquil Doubtful Sound aboard the Fiordland Navigator and Bob tries his hand at sheep shearing!
