This is a must if you have time while staying in Te Anau. They pick you up from your accommodation and the driver gives you commentary while on your drive but not all the time. Just enough though so y...
The Milford Highway is the gateway to the Milford Sound from Te Anau and is known as the "world's most beautiful" alpine road by Lonely Planet.
The picturesque scenery along the way, both New Zealand's largest natural grassland, imagined in the oily grass covered with golden luster, overlooking the Eglington Valley, dreams like a fairyland.
The best viewing mirror lake with the reflection of the snow-capped mountains, the reflection of the lake and the real scene constitute two parallel worlds, which are really unclear.
Also worth mentioning is the world's only granite tunnel Homer Tunnel, where the traffic lights are the highest in New Zealand, and parking is also an honor.
If you are lucky enough, you can see the endangered scorpion parrot. It is the only alpine parrot in the world. It often chases people to ask for food, but once it develops the habit of being fed by tourists, it will lose its predation. Ability is not easy to survive in the wild, so it is recommended not to feed.
Real journeys New Zealand reservation preferred
wake up from the hotel in the morning, DIY Chinese food has started a new day, more and more discover the charm of tomatoes and potatoes, the price of vegetables found in the supermarket is more expensive than vegetables And the expensive ones are not a little bit. The vegetables here are all brought in outside, and the meat can be domesticated. The sheep here are really rich. I saw a group of small partners on the road. It is also not afraid of cold, very cute, very cute, and want to squeeze it.
2 pm, we drove to the downtown area of Queenstown and came to the real journeys of the lake. This is also the largest travel company in Queenstown, with all the travel incentives, and the price is particularly transparent. Enjoy a different experience at a price.
New South Island's largest attraction group - "Real Journey" offers a wealth of tourism in destinations such as Queenstown, the National Fiordland Park area and Stewart Island: Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound, TSS Centennial Steam Boats, Walt Farms, Stewart Island, Te Anau Firefly Caves, etc. This is also the official passage for all of New Zealand's extreme projects, which we also booked above.
New Zealand has two major fjords: Mildford Sound, Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound. Both can see dolphins, penguins, sea lions and other wild animals, but the Fantasy Fjord is 10 times larger than the Milford Sound and the price is slightly more expensive. The Milford Sound is directly accessible by land. The Doubtful Sound must be reached by a cruise on a cruise ship. There are only RealJourneys in the Doubtful Sound, so the number of visitors is limited to 450 per day. The other two fjords have overnight cruises and many hiking trails. The nearby TeAnau Te Anau is a lakeside town that is a base camp for hiking or trips to Milford Sound.
RealJourneys and SouthernDiscoveries are the two best cruise companies in Milford Sound
The road to and from the Mildford Fjord is known as one of the world's best scenic highland roads, with spectacular scenery and the best of the world's geography classrooms. There are many ways to watch, you can walk, sea, boat, boat to enjoy the scenery of the Fiordland National Park, or take a flight from the air to enjoy the scenery. The whole page of Lonely Planet introduces this road. Ranches, mirror lakes, forests, peaks, canyons, waterfalls, and tunnels are all available. There are also different trails and different trails. This road alone. It is worth going to go to Milford Sound, this is my longing for life.
Open the foggy valley and see it sunny. It seems that God is very helpful. It is an excellent chance to win the early peak travel team, thanks to the homework before the trip. The Fiordland Cruise Terminal is also a beautiful landscape.
Milford Sounds National Park, a wonder of nature. The most eye-catching sight here is the deep gorge created by the glacial movement and cutting two million years ago. The peaks on both sides rise vertically. The boat sailed quietly, and the snow-capped waterfalls on both sides vented, the park's most symbolic landscape. The waterfall is extraordinary and the water comes from the valley glaciers. Despite the summer season, you can still fully feel the cold feeling brought by the snow mist. The valley waterfalls are everywhere, the size and shape are different, and the waterfall in front is like the turbulent water of the creek, and it is another scene. The weather in the fjord valley was very varied, and suddenly there was a torrential rain in the sun. The fjord is fascinating and the scenery is everywhere, and people watch quietly with only the shutter sound of the camera.
Milford Sound is a world-famous natural wonder. It is formed by the force of glaciers and enjoys the reputation of “the eighth wonder of the world”. It is located on a glacial terrain within the Fiordland National Park in the southwest of New Zealand's South Island. The cliffs, emerged from the calm and dark waters, are steep and winding, with dense rainforests on the cliffs. And waterfalls plunge into the sea from hundreds of meters high over the cliffs. The water tour of Milford Sound is the main way to enjoy the fjord's beauty. Seals, dolphins, the downpours all year round and the mists all adds to its beauty. Surrounded by hills covered with snow, there are many small waterfalls formed by snow melting.
