Simply beautiful. Not much to say because it would be necessary to write a book to describe all the beauty of the place. Everything is beautiful, from the path that leads to the place, and obviously, the place itself. Do not Miss Out!

Allow at least 2 hours for the drive to Milford Sound from Te Anau and make sure you stop at mirror lakes on the way up in the morning because the sun is the wrong place to see a the mountain reflections on the way back. Recommend the Southern Discovery Nature Cruise - it's less crowded than many and the... More

The place is called the 8th natural wonder of the world and for a reason, so be sure not to miss it. It is worth every penny. Definitely take a cruise! If you travel in winter, the road might be closed, make sure that you have a backup plan.

Having been here a year earlier with my wife and 3 children, on our return visit to New Zealand Milford Sound was an absolute must. One of the most spectacular places in New Zealand.

It has taken almost a lifetime to get there, but was worth it. We took a trip out through the sounds to the Tasman Sea with Juicy Tours, there are a lot to pick from, but it was this one we got the best deal. (thank-you Juicy Tours.) There's seals, peaks and water falls to see and one water fall... More

The Milford Sound cruise was relaxing, breathtaking and beautiful. Captains commentary was interesting and enlightening. Even though it was freezing and raining the day we went, wouldn't have missed it for quids.

Milford Sound is incredibly beautiful and so cathartic. I felt so at peace with the world the day we went. We saw the sun and the rain and fog and each view was special.

Its altogether a different experience. We drove down from Te Anau. The drive is one of the most wonderful drives we had. Ensure that you have enough time to take short stops on the way. Don't miss a single moment till you return. When you visit, you realise the wonderful creations of nature. We were lucky to get good sunny... More
