Located in the southwest corner of the South Island, Fiordland National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site, featuring stunning waterfalls, mountains, forests, lakes and valleys. Lush and untouched, it's also one of the wettest regions in New Zealand. The local wildlife includes seals, penguins and dolphins.
It is home to the world-famous Milford Sound, which can be explored further via scenic flight or cruise, as well as Doubtful Sound—New Zealand's deepest fiord. Three of New Zealand's "Great Walks" are located in Fiordland National Park: The Milford Track, the Kepler Track and the Routeburn Track. Diving and kayaking offer alternative ways to explore.
The town of Te Anau is the gateway to Fiordland National Park. Many operators also offer day and overnight trips to Milford Sound departing from Queenstown.
