Fiordland National Park Overview

Fiords are basically u-shaped valleys carved out by glaciers and flooded by the sea. In simpler words, they are basically a grand show put up by mother nature and the Fiordland National park is full of them as it is home to more than fourteen fiords. The Milford sound region is so visually stunning that it is often described as the eighth wonder of the world.

The largest national park in the country, the Fiordland National Park is amongst the most beautiful places to see in New Zealand. Packed with astonishing surroundings and unmatched landscapes, the area is full of excitement and thrills and entertains all sorts of travellers.
