Not to be missed when visiting Fiordland is a trip to majestic
Milford Sound, one of New Zealand's most spectacular areas. Marvel
at Mitre Peak, one of the most photographed peaks in the country,
and go hiking along the Milford Track, a 30-mile, four-day trek
that takes in some of New Zealand's finest scenery (which is saying
something). A scenic buffet of mountain passes, river valleys,
ancient forests and dramatic waterfalls, you'll almost certainly
leave with your fill of beauty.
Another area well worth a visit is Doubtful Sound a wonderful
wilderness of rugged peaks, vivid green rainforest and twisting,
hidden inlets. Known for its pristine beauty and diverse wildlife,
you can expect to see bottlenose dolphins and fur seals and
hopefully catch a glimpse of the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin.
All this dramatic flora and fauna can be enjoyed from the air by
helicopter and fixed-wing flight, from the water on your own
private boat cruise, or simply on foot to give you a real feeling
for the sheer size of this magnificent terrain.
