The Tranquility of Milford Sound, New Zealand

Called the “eighth wonder of the world” by renowned English poet Rudyard Kipling, Milford Sound in New Zealand wows everyone with its breathtaking mountain peaks (some reach up t0 1,000 meters) and the spectacular effect of echoing waterfall sounds whenever it rains. Milford Sound can be found on the South Island’s west coast. And as you can imagine, it’s a favorite tourist destination in New Zealand.

Thousands of tourists come to New Zealand every year to enjoy the country’s splendid vistas, tranquil atmosphere, and exquisite natural beauty. It has been dubbed many times as the “Switzerland of the South” but those who have come here to explore what it has to offer say that it’s beyond that, that it has its own unique charm that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Milford Sound is one testament to that. It will blow your mind in more ways than one. If you’re coming to New Zealand, you should definitely take a boat cruise (either a day trip or overnight) to experience this highly-revered tourist attraction.

The place offers exciting activities for the adventurous–diving, flightseeing, kayaking and many more. Hikers will enjoy traversing through the Milford Track which starts at the northern edge of Lake Te Anau and ends with a quick boat tour from Sandfly Point to Milford Sound wharf. Take your vacation a notch higher by learning more about marine life. Visit the Harrison Cove underwater observatory.

You can stay over at the Milford Sound Lodge or the Mitre Peak Lodge. Two of the top-rated restaurants here at the Blue Duck Cafe and Bar, and the International Buffet. For your touring needs, check out the Go Orange Day Cruise, Rosco’s Milford Kayaks, and Mitre Peak Cruises.
