Destination Fiordland New Zealand

PO Box 155, Te Anau, New Zealand, 9672 - View the map

Fiordland - one of the world's last great wildernesses and the essence of New Zealand's untamed splendor. Imagine standing high in the mountains, looking over a vast landscape of soaring peaks, glistening fiords, and mighty rivers winding through native forest. Fiordland is a "must-see" or anyone travelling in New Zealand's South Island.

Renowned as the home of Mitre Peak and the awe-inspiring fiords of Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound, Fiordland has achieved World Heritage status. Numerous short walks and multi-day hiking trails, including three of the New Zealand Great Walks (the Milford, Routeburn, and Kepler Tracks), have earned Fiordland the reputation of one of the world's finest walking destinations. Combine your walk with a jet boat ride, a horse trek or a quad-bike trip and you have an adventure of a lifetime.

The attractive town of Te Anau, located on the shores of the South Island's largest lake, is the gateway to Fiordland and provides a perfect base to explore the area. Here you can enjoy a range of activities on or off the water, fine restaurants, cosy cafes and busy shops. The Fiordland region also offers a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets, from backpackers to luxury boutique lodges and everything in between.

From Te Anau it is a 2-hour drive through some of the most beautiful South Island scenery to Milford Sound or 20 minutes by road to the most picturesque lake in the world, Lake Manapouri, and the start of a Doubtful Sound excursion.
