Milford Sound is one of the many fiords within Fiordland National Park. Carved by glaciers during the ice age, it winds 15 km inland from the Tasman Sea, flanked by steep rock faces on either side. Lush rain forests grow on the cliffs and when it rains, as it often does, countless waterfalls cascade down the rocks, adding to the magnificent sight.

Like all tourists visiting this natural wonder, we took a boat tour, which brings us from the head of the fiord to its mouth, where it meets the open sea, and back. If you get seasick as easily as I do, avoid eating before the cruise or take the necessary medication, because as the boat gets closer to the sea, the water gets choppier.
