Milford Sound is a fiord towering Mitre Peak, rainforests and waterfalls which plummet down its sheer sides. It is also a home to fur seal colonies and penguins. Carry some water proof essentials to enjoy the water streams gushing on your boat. Keep a buffer in your drive time to Milford, believe us there are quite few stops you would want to make just because the drive is gorgeous! It’s common to drive back to Queenstown after visiting Milford but we decided to stay the night at Te Anau.
