Nature is amazing

Just stunning when the sun peeks out with ice on the top. A view you could not get tired of seeing. Good viewing of this around the foreshore walk with a few good places to take photos. Loads of sandflies.

Majestic sight

At nearly 1.7kms high, Mitre Peak stands in full view (on clear days at least) from the beach at Milford Sound. Makes for fantastic photos!

Mitre Peak - The face of every postcard.

Worth visiting Milford Sound to get some good snaps of this incredible mountain.

Scenery is amazing around the Milford Sounds

This is the quintessential mountain in New Zealand. Most photographed etc. It is spectacular. Not to be missed. Hopefully you will see it in it's entirety. Usually the weather does not permit.

Top Attraction - Overexploited?
Dec 2016
Rated Number 1 World tourist attraction and deserves the rating. Visiting on a 120.000 ton cruise ship, bad weather, we saw little, except for, at the one time, fourteen other tour vessels, four fixed wing aircraft, three helicopters, five kayaks, two keeler yachts, a pilot boat and two fishing boats. For what is promoted as the most pristine, the most remote and the mist beautiful spot on the planet, we experienced "Grand Central Station" in the rush hour. We are now steaming on to our next victim, trying a massive stream of sulphur filled exhaust gases. Sorry fur seals, sorry little penguins, sorry leopard seals, sorry all you other beautiful birds, at least you can be proud that you do your natural bit for the tourism industry. NZ must start to watch it's future for the Golden Egg of tourism. More and more we hear the clatter of helicopters and smell the exhaust stacks on the money-makers/exploiters who drive the industry.

Quintessential Milford Sound
Mar 2017 • Couples
Nothing says "Milford Sound" like the view of Mitre Peak. It is the picture that always comes up if you search "Milford Sound". Simply stunning. You can get some amazing pictures from the area right between the Car Park and the covered walkway to the Cruise Terminal.

A beautiful mountain among beautiful mountains!

This is a recognizable peak because of its special cone top. We loved seeing it as it seems to appear on so many of the popular NZ postcards, a must-see in Fiordland!

You can see Mitre Peak whist you stand on the jetty before boarding your boat. It is magnificent and at the heart of the sound. Truly sunning, a must see.

A Must Do in New Zealand

Mitre Peak and the Milford sounds are just majestic. To be able to see such incredible scenery in our own country makes us very lucky indeed. Everyone should try to get there at least once - I fell in love with it!
