Fiordland National Park describes a vast area that includes some of New Zealand's best-known scenic icons, Milford Sound, Mitre Peak, Doubtful Sound, and the Great Walks, all of which can be accessed via a range of premier visitor activities, kayak, cruise and sightseeing opportunities, as well as guided excursions with knowledgeable local guides. Fiordland Attractions, Activities and Tours include overnight cruises on Milford or Doubtful Sounds.
Milford Sound is the departure point for all day cruises, overnight cruises and kayaking trips on Milford Sound. We recommend staying in Te Anau the night before, which makes for an easy drive to Milford the next day.
The main tourist centre of Queenstown has many full day tours to Fiordland National Park; with options to Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound. From Queenstown you can either coach both ways to Milford, or alternatively take a scenic flight.
Te Anau is the main accommodation gateway for Fiordland National Park: with day and overnight tours to Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound and Te Anau Glowworm Caves; as well as kayaking trips. A great place from where to explore Fiordland.
