Fiordland is located on the south-west coast of the South Island of New Zealand.
As one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of New Zealand, Fiordland has achieved World Heritage status and is often called the Sightseeing and Walking Capital of the world.
Fiordland contains four main areas - Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound, Te Anau and Manapouri.
Milford Sound has stunning scenery with boat excursions to sail alongside dolphins, a scenic drive alongside the fiord to the ocean and also an Underwater Observatory, 10 metres below ground.
Doubtful Sound is often called the Sound of Silence and has a more serene feel to it than Milford. It’s the deepest fiord at 421 metres deep and is home to many New Zealand Fur Seals and Fiordland Crested Penguins.
Te Anau is the main place for discovering and exploring the Fiordland National Park. From Te Anau it is an easy two hour drive to Milford Sound, and twenty minutes drive to Lake Manapouri and the start of the Doubtful Sound excursion.
