This nature reserve has a wonderful landscape that you can explore in various ways. On foot, of course, but also by kayak. Where you can see the fjords from the water surface.
Fiordland National Park is immense; a wonderful landscape that you can explore in many different ways. You can walk around, but you can also take to the water in kayaks, so you can see the fjords from the surface of the sound.
A guide will assign you to a kayak, after which you will receive an explanation about the tour. It is important to bring good rain gear with you. Because it can suddenly start to rain, for five minutes or hours.
The route depends mostly on the wind. But you always get to see a good part of Milford Sound. This part is nice and rough, with unprecedented views.
And if that’s not enough, you’re also likely to encounter different kinds of animals there. For example, curious penguins (who regularly approach humans) or hungry fur seals. But you may also see dolphins. Kayak tours can take several hours, or you can explore the park for several days with a guide, who will tell you all about the wild landscape around you.
You can take kayak tours in the famous Milford Sound, or in the quieter Doubtful Sound. You choose where you’d like to go.
