Walks in Milford Sound

For many, the Te Anau-Milford Highway offers the first taste of Fiordland’s spectacular national park. So why not pull over and take some time to explore all the area has to offer?

Note: Milford Sound and the Milford Road are in Fiordland National Park, Dogs are not permitted in National Parks
