milford sound cruise in new zealand
One of the most stunning natural wonders in New Zealand has to be Milford Sound. Most of our south islands trips visit this spectacular spot and the drive there is one of the highlights.
Milford Sound (known as Piopiotahi in Maori) is found in the south west corner of the South Island. Rudyard Kipling famously named this the eighth wonder of the World and it has recently been listed in the new natural wonders of the World.
The Milford cruise can be likened to be entering a prehistoric world – maybe like Jurassic Park. Our largest and most dynamic environments, Fiordland National Park is full of incredible scenery to capture however, only by boat, will you be completely blown away by enormity of these insane fiords that were once totally covered in ice.
Sheer cliff faces will tower above you as you cruise through the pristine, peaceful and beautiful Milford Sound. Sunny days, you can relax on the top deck open area of the boat. On rainy days, many of our passengers will agree these days are often better as this is where hundreds of waterfalls can be seen at impressive flows. For 1.5 hours, and only $65, could be the best money spent in New Zealand!
