Experience Milford Sound

Despite being one of the most accessible fjords, Milford Sound remains quiet and still, bounded by steep cliffs and dense rainforest.  Rain or shine, Milford Sound continues to captivate even the most experienced traveller.

At the pinnacle of Milford Sound is the magnetising Mitre Peak - standing a proud 1,692 metres above sea level, it is certainly an impressive sight to behold. Milford Sound is by far the best known of all of the fjords in New Zealand, and the only one that can be accessed by road. It is approximately 16km from the head of the fjord to the open sea, which means visitors can comfortably travel the length of the fjord to open ocean and return on one of the many cruise options.

Milford Road

milford road

Some of the most striking and significant features are revealed along this route. Many visitors underestimate the grandeur and beauty of the journey, and leave insufficient time to explore this extraordinary area.  A range of short walks and photographic opportunities mean that those wishing to truly explore will find no shortage of spectacular stops to choose from.  The road is fully sealed, but the 240 kilometre return journey between Te Anau to Milford takes a minimum of two hours driving (in each direction) without allowing for stops.

The road is occasionally closed from Marion Corner due to adverse weather conditions, especially in winter, however the road is well maintained and carefully monitored during periods of heavy snow.  Drivers must note that all vehicles on the Milford Road are required by law to carry chains for their vehicles over winter months.
