Discover one of the natural wonders of the World - Milford Sound

A true highlight of many Flying kiwi trips has to be our time at the stunning Milford Sound. This amazing natural phenomenon is currently being considered as one of the official 7 new wonders of the World (check out the latest list and cast your votes here).

Wet or fine Milford is incredibly grand. Mitre Peak magnetises photographers, and the fiord's sheer cliffs excite both admiration and apprehension. Milford is by far the best known of all of the fiords and the only one that can be accessed by road. It isapproximately 16km from the head of they fiord to the open sea, which means visitors can comfortably travel the length of the fiord to the open ocean.

The road to Milford Sound, which traverses Fiordland National Park below massive peaks and bluffs, is considered one of the finest alpine drives in the world. Arriving at Milford, visitors are confronted by the most famous of New Zealand icons - the majestic Mitre Peak. Visitors to this vast, remote area, practically untouched by humans, are often overwhelmed by the incredible solitude and serenity of Fiordland.

The best part of a Flying Kiwi trip there is the option to enjoy this fantastic journey in by bike - and yes its nearly all downhill. Once there we have some excellent hike options and the boat cruise is a real hit with all our travellers.
