Travelled on this road in a tour coach - small 16 seater. Would definitely recommend this as the best way to travel to Milford. Road can be challenging, and tours know all the best photo stops. Great scenery, unique to NZ, unique to Fiordland

I am sure that this highway is the most beautiful one in the world. Actually, I enjoyed driving along this road more than the cruise! Make a stop and rest, enjoy the mother nature.

The Milford sound highway is a good quality road which has many turns as you wind yourself down the hill from the Homer tunnel straight into Milford sound

We took six hours traveling from Te Anau to Milford Sound, stopping at Mirror Lake, several falls, and many hikes. I would highly recommend spending three days at Milford Sound--one day to drive in, one day around Milford Sound, and one day driving out.

The road to Milford is incredibly breathtaking. Take your time when driving to Milford, allowing plenty of stops for photos.

So, I'll preface this by saying that someone on our hike in the mountains said this was New Zealand's deadliest drive- NOT. It is truly beautiful and has many easy turnoffs to take in the views. Just remember that you are driving on the LEFT...More

We took more than 6 hours to do this drive, stopping for photographs and exploring many of the side roads. It’s really worth it. Make sure you fill your car in Te Anau as there are no shops or filling stations on the road. There...More

There are countless places to stop on this walk. We were stopped at the Homer tunnel and had a chance to visit with and take photos of kea birds. Plenty to do and important to stop and take time - whether you like a 5...More

Plenty of places to stop and take in the view, this is a two lane, and in some cases one lane road so allow yourself plenty of time to meet your cruise.
