The overall drive to milford sound was simply breathtaking. When you get to the Sound it's all very ok ok unless you take a cruise. The scenery in spring with melting snow and avalanches was wonderful.We did an overnight cruise on the Milford Mariner. It was absolutley fantastic. The staff were great, the food was exceptional and our accommodation was very good. We saw some fantastic sights as we had the best of both worlds. we saw seals,dolphins. As it was heavily raining throughout,it actually add to the scenery. we could see hundreds of rain fed springs all throughout the gigantic fiords. We went uptill the tasman sea.. the 3 course dinner and lovely bfast added more feathers to our trip. Real Journeys was the best. you should visit this place by own accomodation as the drive itself is very nice. so that you can stop at any place you want to. allow some time for yourself as you cant stop yourself from stopping the car at many a places for pics.when when returned the next morning, there was a heavy snowfall n that added to the beauty.. but not to worry as the snow ckearing trucks were at full swing. a must visit in south island.
