What We Love About Milford Sound

Milford Sound is home to the iconic Mitre Peak - one of the most photographed landmarks of New Zealand. Nature is Milford Sound's best asset, with rolling waters like Stirling and Bowen Falls, and lush rainforests dotting the landscape. Milford Sound itself is home to a variety of wildlife including fur seals, dolphins and penguins. The best way to explore Milford Sound is naturally by boat. For a one-of-a-kind experience, hop on a small sea plane and fly into Milford Sound from Queenstown on a 1.5 hour scenic flight. If you prefer being closer to the water, you can even book yourself an overnight cruise to absorb the sights and sounds of the fjord.

On the way, you can see the fjord terrain eroded by the glaciers and the steep mountain walls on both sides. The beautiful scenes overlapped. There are several slender glacial waterfalls in the fjord. The captain will take the cruise ship to the waterfall and let everyone feel the natural power of the waterfall. Cross the Mifo Fjord to the estuary of the Tasman Sea, and then return to the luck. If you have good luck, you may have the opportunity to see bottlenose dolphins, fjord penguins, seals and other animals. It is a good experience to take a boat trip for nearly two hours. Great opportunity for natural magnificence

Fortunately, buying a package instead of driving to the road by yourself is scary enough. Many road sections have a lot of bends and the road is super narrow. You can only follow the command to move. If you are not careful, you may crash and die. Then I found out that there is only 10 a year. It’s sunny, but I’m a little bit tricked to the scene. The rain is not too big for a while. The seals are also super cute and the glass ceiling of the cable car is clear on the return trip. The sky is super beautiful.
