We’ve recently received a newsletter from Destination Fjordland in Fjordland a region of New Zealand, and thought it worth a mention as a reminder of just how diverse this part of the country is. Located on the South Island, and most easily accessible from Te Anau, both Milford and Doubtful Sounds are stunningly beautiful – with sheer cliffs, superb waterfalls, flora and fauna.

There are a huge variety of ways in which the region can be explored – fairly traditionally by way of a day trip from Te Anau comprising coach and cruise, or more energetically by kayak or by tramping the well marked trails. Trails include the renowned Milford Track and Keplar Track, along with the lesser known Chasm Track. The walks vary in difficulty – some graded easy, and others for the more experienced hiker.

Consider joining a walk along the rugged coastline –the longest walkable stretch of wilderness coastline in New Zealand for something a little different.

One unique option is to dive Milford Sound and Piopiotahi – with a chance to see legendary black coral trees that grow up to five metres tall, red corals, sea dragon, dog sharks, crayfish, snake stars, octopus and others besides.

Take a horseback ride or quad biking tour through the beautiful scenery – much of which features in the Lord of the Rings films and the new Hobbit film, or take a tour of a working farm.

These are simply a few possibilities in this region – there truly is something to suit everyone here, whether your interest lies in the scenery, the wildlife, activities or a combination of these. The region is a ‘must’ during a holiday to New Zealand, and we can work with you to incorporate this region into a wider itinerary to this beautiful country.
