Experience "the finest walk in the world" as you retrace the steps of early explorers through glacier-carved valleys and ancient rainforests.
Fiordland (Ata Whenua - Shadowlands) is a place of extraordinary scenic beauty. One of New Zealand’s oldest tourism drawcards, this rugged and remote region offers awe-inspiring landscapes and wide range of recreational activities. It’s a world-class sightseeing destination and a must-do for anyone exploring New Zealand.
Milford Sound (Piopiotahi) is the jewel in Fiordland’s crown and has been attracting international visitors to the area for more than 100 years. The attractive lakeside town of Te Anau boasts a wide range of activities on or off the water, fine restaurants and luxury accommodation. Another lakeside town, Manapōuri, is the base for discovering Doubtful Sound (Pātea) and also offers plenty of activities and destinations for travellers.
Numerous short walks and multi-day hiking trails, including three of the New Zealand Great Walks (the Milford, Routeburn, and Kepler Tracks), have earned Fiordland the reputation of one of the world’s finest walking destinations. Alternatively, a wide range of boat cruises offer a leisurely way to experience the fantastic landscapes.
