  Milford Sound
by martin_nl

At the end of our 4 days tramping through Fiordland National Park on the Milford Track the weather was absolutely awful, however in the evening when we had warmed up again in the hostel in Milford the skies seemed to get clearer. We didn't keep our hopes up high, since you never know what to expect over here, so prepared for the worst for the next day.

However next morning we got up quite early and as we opened the curtains we saw nothing in the sky, just endless blue!! Had a quick brekkie and shower and off we went on the free shuttle bus. We were among the first people that day to walk in Milford Sound and with such good weather it felt like a privilege. This has to be the most tranquil place in the whole world!!!

Around noon the tour buses all came in and the atmosphere was gone. However we had to meet up again with the Kiwi Experience bus, because they would take us back to Queenstwon tonight. But first a boat cruise on the Sound for a couple of hours....

Directions: Follow Milford Road from Te Anau. You can only go one way from there!
