About Milford Sound

Milford Sound, despite its name, is actually a fiord in the South Island. Milford Sound was judged as the world’s top travel destination by the 2008 Traveller’s Choice Destinations Awards by TripAdvisor.  Considered New Zealand’s most famous tourist destination, Rudyard Kipling once called Milford Sound the eighth wonder of the world.

The landscape attracts thousands of visitors each day,  with between 550,000 and 1 million visitors per year. Milford Sound is considered one of the wettest inhabited places in New Zealand.  Rainfall can reach 250mm during a span of 24 hours. The rainfall creates dozens of temporary waterfalls cascading down the cliff faces, just one of many breathtaking sights for visitors to the area.
