Nestled in the World Heritage Fiordland National Park of New Zealand, Milford Sound has been described as one of the Natural Wonders of the World ... with its awe-inspiring Mitre Peak and stunning waterfalls that tumble down into the serene waters.

The sound is located at the northern end of the wild Fiordland, which stretches over 200 kilometers from Milford Sound to Preservation Inlet. On the eastern frontier the forest gives way to the drier and pastoralSouthland and is defined by large lakes. The Tasman Coast lies on thewestern boundary, and to the north lies the Southern Alps.

Fiordland's extraordinary coastline and deep branching lakeswere carved out by glaciers millions of years ago, leaving behind aland hailed for its spectacular scenery ... its isolation ... its wild, uninhabitied environment.

Milford Sound is one of the wettest places in the world and this rain contributes to the area's beauty, nourishing its rich beech forests. The waters of Milford Sound are a haven for wildlife ... a place where dolphins, seals and penguins are often seen in their natural environment.

If you're planning a visit to New Zealand ... Milford Sound is a destination to seriously consider adding to your vacation. Adventure travel vacations bring you in touch with nature.
