Fiordland

Milford Sounds, Fiordland, South Island Wild flowers, Fiordland

The Fiordland National Park is a 1.2 million hectares wilderness area and one of New Zealand's World Heritage sites. It is located in the south-west of New Zealand's South Island.

It is home to some of New Zealand's most stunning scenery - snow capped mountains plunge into deep fjords. Glaciers can be walked to or explored, if your adventurous, tussock grasslands add to the variation as do native forests.

Fiordland is home to the Milford and Doubtful Sounds, home to some of the tallest waterfalls in the world (Browne and Sutherland Falls), the Milford Track, and Lakes Manapouri, Te Anau (the second largest in New Zealand), Monowai, Hauroko and Poteriteri.

Te Anu is considered to be the gateway to the park and provides breathtaking scenery backed by Mt Luxmore and the Murchison mountains.

Lake Manapoui is splendid with its own islands and mountainous embrace (Cathedral Mountain range). If you're planning on exploring doubtful Sound excursions leave from Manapouri and it is also a great township to base yourself in and enjoy some multi-day tramps.

Milford Sound is often enjoyed as a day trip from Queenstown and a cruise on the fiord offers spectacular scenery including Mitre Peak. Steep rock faces reach for the sky and beautiful waterfalls cascade down them, the mountains then plunge into the waters - some for hundreds of metres. A fresh water layer containing tannins from the surrounding forest help filter the light so that normally deep dwelling life is found at relatively shallow depths. This is an amazing home for black corals.

Doubtful Sounds is the deepest of the fiords - kayak or cruise to visit this area.

The threatened Fiordland crested penguin breeds along the Fiordland coastline and the New Zealand fur seal, once hunted to near extinction can be seen resting along the coast.

Fiordland is an outdoor adventurers wonderland with tramping, cruises, sailing, ice climbing and trout fishing among a few of the experiences you can enjoy.
