    Milford Sound

    February 8, 2017 in New Zealand ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Milford Sound, actually a Fjord carved by a glacier is an incredible sight to behold! We enjoyed a peaceful two hour evening cruise through the fjord and were blown away by the jagged mountains, blue waters and impressive waterfalls. Our skipper was even kind enough to allow us to get drenched in the spray of Stirling Falls (apparently we should wake up feeling ten years younger tomorrow!)

    We sailed out to the mouth of the Tasman Sea and then back through the stunning scenery and even had a nice complimentary BBQ dinner.

    The drive there and back was almost as breathtaking, making our way through Fiordland including an impressive mountain tunnel, stunning sights of the Southern Alps and lakes all around.

    A truly unforgettable experience.
