Milford Sound Doubtful Sound Te Anau Fiordland New Zealand
  • Overview
  • Accommodation
  • Activities and short breaks
  • Holidays

Dramatic, rugged and remote the Fiordland Region contains the Fiordland National Park that covers more than 1.25 million hectares. Access is by just a few roads and walking tracks – not surprising that the Takahe, one of New Zealand’s intriguing flightless birds, remained hidden here and thought to be extinct for more that 50 years, before being re-discovered in 1948. Some captive Takahe (part of the species management program) can be seen at the wildlife enclosure on the shores of Lake Te Anau.

Highlights for visitors to Fiordland include Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound that can be visited as day trips, or you can overnight on a Real Journey’s Overnight Cruise. Enjoy spectacular scenery and wildlife spotting (watch for Fiordland Crested Penguins, Bottle Nosed Dolphins, New Zealand Fur seals, Blue Penguins & Dusky Dolphins). Choose from a Milford Sound Overnight Cruise or a Doubtful Sound Overnight Cruise. For day trippers you can travel to Milford and experience a day time scenic or Nature Cruise, or take the full day excursion for a Doubtful Sound Day Trip.

When travelling to Milford Sound take time to experience some of the many short walks and photo stops along the way and to appreciate the fantastic feat of engineering that the road itself represents.

For a more active expedition there are day and multi day hikes into wilderness areas on the Milford Track, Hollyford Track, and Routeburn Track.

The main accommodation base for trips to Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound is Te Anau, located 21kms from Manapouri, the departure point for Doubtful Sound, and 120kms from Milford Sound. Day trips also operate from Queenstown by coach, or can be combined with flight options to reduce travelling time. At Te Anau you will find the departure point for trips to the Te Anau Glow Worm Caves that are accessed via a boat trip across Lake Te Anau.
