Everybody has already known that Milford Sound is one of the most famous tourist destination and a must-do for any visitor to South Island New Zealand. If the world has seven wonders, Milford Sound is the Eighth Wonder of the World (thanks to Rudyard Kipling). I would like to share some tips based on my journey to Fiordland (Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound, Te Anau, Routeburn and Keppler Track) in 3 seasons (summer, winter and spring).
The tips are mostly the same for other season (autumn and spring), but these two seasons are not holiday seasons fewer people will visit Milford Sound. However, you still need to consider my tips for summer and winter seasons, as the weather can change very quickly (it is possible if you experience 4 seasons in a day).
But you should take the risk if you want to visit this wonderful place, you can always come back if you aren’t lucky. I failed twice but also succeeded twice to go to Milford Sound.
