Welcome to Fjordland


Fjordland is located on the south-west coast of the South Island of New Zealand. As one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand, Fjordland has achieved World Heritage status and is often called the Sightseeing and Walking Capital of the world. The best base for exploring the Fjordland region is the attractive resort town of Te Anau. From here it is an easy two hours drive to Milford Sound and twenty minutes drive to Lake Manapouri and the start of a Doubtful Sound excursion. The road to Milford Sound is considered to be one of the world's finest alpine drives. At Milford Sound you could explore the underwater observatory, or take a guided diving trip. Doubtful Sound, often called the Sounds of Silence, is rich in natural history, such as flora and fauna. While on Doubtful Sound make sure you keep an eye out for the Fjordland Crested Penguins, Bottlenose Dolphins and New Zealand Fur Seals. To truly get the best experience from Milford and Doubtful Sound you should take a day cruise or overnight cruise.

Fjordland National Park can be explored on foot, on a boat cruise, by sea kayak or on a breathtaking scenic flight over the fjords, lakes and miles of ice and snow-covered mountains.
