  • We travelled from Te Anau to Milford Sound in a minibus with stops on the way. Everything we saw took our breath away - mirror lake, chasm, waterfalls, valleys, a tunnel and stunning views all the way...  more »
  • People what a track to come here first. But also for other visitors there is info on the geology, history, animals and plants in the national park

  • Bus tour to Milford Sound, en route from Te Anau on enjoying beautiful views of the Park. Imagine with fjords and inlets from the sea, but here is to visit a glacier terrain on land away from the sea and was very good.
