One of the southern hemisphere’s great wilderness regions and the home of Mitre Peak and the awe-inspiring fiords of Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound, Lake Te Anau and Lake Manapouri, Fiordland has World Heritage status for its natural scenery and exceptional beauty.
Numerous short walks and multi-day hiking trails, including three New Zealand Great Walks, the Milford, Routeburn, and Kepler Tracks, have earned Fiordland the reputation as one of the world’s finest walking destinations. Te Anau, on the shores of the South Island’s largest lake, is the gateway to Fiordland and provides a perfect base to explore the area.
Home to Mitre Peak, and stunning fiords, Fiordland is known as the sightseeing and walking capital of the world.
