Milford Sound
#2 of 14 Nature & Parks in Te Anau
The Nature cruise was spectacular it was everything you could hope for, Glorious views, wildlife Dolphins, Seals, Birds, water falls as well as some challenging swells in the bay (a little heart pounding).
The drive through the national park to get to Milford Sound is an adventure in its own right with beautiful glaciers, a one lane tunnel, high altitude flowers and majestic mountains.

If you plan to do a day walk starting from the car park rather than by the ferry, remember to start early and the hut is a great place for lunch, and the cave near the hut is a good place to explore.

The Chasm Walk
#5 of 14 Nature & Parks in Te Anau
... about this walk - its short and super easy through beautiful rainforest and definitely worth doing as only a short distance from Milford Sound itself and clearly signposted from the road with a massive car park!
This is a very short side trip off the road to Milford Sound and is well worth it - even at low water the effect of the chasm was spectacular - and there was even a coffee cart in the car park too for a quick cuppa!
