Keep a day to visit the absolutely stunning Milford Sound - it'll be a long day, but something you cannot miss. I strongly recommend the BBQ Bus - the only tour that provides a hot barbeque meal, along a stream in the middle of nowhere! The tour is not your typical sightseeing tour - it's more like a friend showing a small group of 10-12 his favourite spots. You pass the small city of Te Anau and the Fjordland National Park before you get to the Sound. The route itself is absolutely stunning and there's a photo op around every corner. So don't fall asleep. Milford Sound is a beauty that transcends worlds - the hour long cruise had me mesmerized for the entire duration. 3. Franz Josef
Lesser known and explored, this place is more magnificent than its popular counterpart, Milford Sound. Named so after Captain Cook was “doubtful” whether the inlet was navigable or not, this landscape is been in the shadows for quite some time. Not many travellers are aware of it and thus it is a much more secluded place. It is not as accessible as the Milford Sound, but by boat it can be easily navigated. Take a boat ride from Manapouri to here and enjoy the landscape and the blue waters. You can spot a lot of wildlife here as well like seals, penguins, starfish and some colourful corals.
