It was a 2+ hour drive to get there but worth every minute ,use to enjoy the scenery en route.

We had to keep stopping to take photos and breath in the amazing views. Photos and words do not do it justice. Truly awe inspiring.

Milford sound itself was very impressive too despite it being wet and foggy. For me, the journey was as impressive as the end destination.

The day started out cloudy and raining. This gave quite a good dramatic intro to the area but as our boat continued sailing, we were greeted with beautiful blue skies that transformed the whole area. A must-do, no matter the weather. It’s worth seeing in bright sunshine or gloomy rain.

This was a great experience. The drive from Queenstown to Milford is amazing.We went on A 45min cruise at Milford sounds which was just beautiful. The colours and the beautiful scenery of the trees,rocks and wildlife. Going on the helicopter flight over the glacier was an amazing experience. We were luckily to experience this as sometimes it is closed due to the weather and rock falls.So please check before you plan your trip. I would recommend driving is the best way to see Nz south island.A great wonder to visit

This was one of the highlights of our trip! We had booked a bus tour, however the bus forgot to pick us up. As a result, The company had accommodated us on this trip, which I probably would not have done independently. However, this is a much better way to see Milford sound! You can either sit in a bus for four hours, or take this beautiful 40 minute flight. Our pilot was wonderful and provided a lot of good information. While this may be more expensive than the bus tour, it is a much better Value and I would highly recommend it!

We had cloudy and gray weather on our morning tour which really depressed me but it was still a natural wonder. Getting that close to a large waterfall was something I will never forget. A definite NZ must do.
