2.Spend a magical day in Milford Sound
Rudyard Kipling described the fjord as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’. Carved by glaciers during the ice ages, Milford Sound’s cliffs rise vertically from its dark waters, the waterfalls cascade downwards and the mountain peaks scrape the sky. While it’s always great to have a sunny day in Milford Sound, you won’t be disappointed if the heavens open. When it rains the mountainsides erupt with hundreds of waterfalls – some begin so high up, they never reach the sea! It’s like being in a fantasy film. Sail out on on a boat trip or enjoy its natural beauty from walking the Milford Track – said to be the ‘finest walk in the world’.
