New Zealand’s Fjordland
We’ve just received a newsletter from Destination Fjordland, reminding us of some of the many reasons to include this stunning region in a visit to the South Island of New Zealand – a snippet follows:
‘Fiordland can be explored by land, air or water – each gives a unique and memorable experience of the country’s largest National Park. Enjoy a cruise on the world-famous Milford Sound, soar over mountains and remote valleys on a scenic helicopter trip, or hire a guide and explore some of Fiordland’s spectacular trails. Of course, to do justice to the variety of scenery in Fiordland, visitors should really try all three!
The Milford Track celebrates its 125th Anniversary in October, with a number of celebrations planned for this milestone. Thousands of visitors walk the track each year and it is every bit as worthy of its ‘Finest Walk in the World’ accolade now, as it was in 1888.’
Te Anau and Queenstown are two of the main gateways to the Fjordland region, and both are widely considered ‘musts’ to include during a holiday to New Zealand. Queenstown is known as the adrenalin capital of New Zealand and has a beautiful location on the shores of Lake Wakatipu close to the Remarkable Mountains, whilst Te Anau is closest to both Milford and Doubtful Sounds. The Milford Track is a popular inclusion for keen walkers and we can discuss with you the best way to incorporate part or the whole of the track into your holiday – providing an opportunity to explore stunning scenery away from the crowds.
