The Milford Sound Tour is a must see if you are visiting New Zealand. It is in Fiordland Nation Park which is about 4-5 hours away if you are driving direct by car. If you don’t feel comfortable driving, then there are many tours that you can take. Everyone that we talked to in New Zealand couldn’t emphasize enough what a must-see the Milford Sound was. We chose the Real Journey tours because they featured glass top luxury coaches with the convenience of wi-fi. You might even get lucky and see a herd of sheep crossing the road.
Milford Sound is in the center of a rain forest, so most days are rainy, but that’s okay because it creates beautiful temporary waterfalls that you wouldn’t get to see on a sunny day. We stopped at many waterfalls along the way, a small park with bird sightings, fields and a lake. It’s so scenic and beautiful out there, that we passed a blockbuster movie set! The rumor was that the movie being filmed was Alien, but no one knows for sure.
