Fiordland National Park is a place where you can enjoy breathtaking scenery, dramatic landscapes and experience the history of New Zealand. This park is famous for its Fjords which are deep inlets that were carved by glaciers during the ice age. There are more than 100 fiords with different shapes, sizes and depths. The most popular one to visit is Milford Sound because it has spectacular views of rainforest-covered mountains on either side with waterfalls cascading below.

Fiordland is one of the most beautiful and least-touched regions in New Zealand. It's a four hour drive southwest from Queenstown, past vast lakes that are filled with monster sized trout, which you're unlikely to ever catch. The road winds around the Dusky Sound fjord before heading up into alpine peaks where no roads can take you any further. This World Heritage region is filled with mountains glaciers sparkling lakes an astonishing number of waterfalls. The area was popularised by the Lord of the Rings films for its glacial lakes nestled under imposing peaks.
