Rudyard Kipling called Milford Sound “the world’s eighth wonder”, and why you can see why you go to this area of New Zealand. Made in the Ice Age by glacier, the landscape around Milford Sound still carries proof of its creation as an epic scene: Cliffs grow from the crowned flag by hills and waterfalls.
Milford Sound New Zealand
The best way to see Milford Sound is through the boat. Take a spectacular space cruise on the fjord to see waterfalls and wildlife such as dolphins and penguins. Or navigate the water under your own steam on a kayaking tour.
Once you have experience of water from the surface, go down with a visit to the Milford Discovery Center and underwater observatory. It is the only float in New Zealand, observing under water and can be more than 30 meters deep (during drying) and can get 360 degrees of water environment.
Hotel for accommodation: There is not enough space to stay close to the sound, but if you want to run Queenstown for three and a half hours, consider Milford Sound Lodge. Lodge offers several packages for hiking and boat excursions and the condition of sound access is not really going to lose this spot.
