Fiordland Travel Planning
Facts about Fiordland with location information
The power of Fiordlands scenery is a magnet to travellers. Waterfalls tumble hundreds of metres into massive fiords; ancient rainforest cling to the mountains; shimmering lakes and granite peaks remain unchanged from a thousand years ago.
Magnificent Milford Sound
Described by Rudyard Kipling as the Eighth Wonder of the World; Milford Sound is forever spectacular. Feel the mist of the waterfalls, look for seals on the rocks and marvel at the steep sides of the fiord.
The deepest fiord
At 421 metres, Doubtful Sound is the deepest of New Zealands fiords. It's a haven for nature with resident bottlenose dolphins, fur seals and penguins. Kayak tours and eco-cruises reveal the mysteries of the fiord.
Three of New Zealand's great walks are found in Fiordland; the Routeburn track, Milford and Kepler tracks. For those with less time, a range of short walks gives you a taste of the wilderness for a few hours.
