We were told that Milford Sound may be rainy, windy and cloudy. It seems at though we were super lucky as the weather was perfect as we cruised along the Sound enjoying Mother Nature at her best.
A slow cruise from the ocean to the Milford Resort takes a couple of hours (depending on vessel speed) and unfolds to you all of the majesty of this incredible place.
If you enjoy natural, unspoiled scenery, with a regular sighting of seals thrown in, then you will adore Milford Sound.
There's not a lot to say about the Sound other than try and describe the awe inspiring vertical cliffs, snow capped mountains and multitude of islands which may, or may not, have been visited by fishermen.
Milford is by far the most magnificent of the three sounds at the bottom of New Zealand's South Island, Dusky, Doubtful and Milford, and is an absolute must as a place to visit.
Recommended either as part of an ocean cruise or as a daily excursion from Milford Lodge.
