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.
