DescriptionGlaciers kind of get a bad rap, especially when they go around sinking ships. But the one that formed Milford Sound thousand of years ago is doing its best to improve the world's view of glaciers. As if New Zealand isn't beautiful enough, Milford Sound is so stunning, it's difficult to even comprehend. It's usually a bad thing for it to rain at a vacation destination, but when it rains at Milford Sound, it only makes it more beautiful as it sends water cascading down the world-renowned waterfalls. Snow-capped mountains-nearly vertical in their steepness-jut out from the deep blue water of the sound. Cruises and Kayaks allow visitors to experience the best of Milford Sound from the water level which may allow you to see the dolphins, penguins, and seals that call the pass home. You can also catch a glimpse at the New Zealand Glow Worm that lights up after dark. Although it's an equally magnificent experience to view the entire site from a scenic flight.

Rain or shine- get out and walk around, trek those trails, get on a boat into the sound....this is where nature had one of its orgasms!!! Having been to NZ and not seen the Sound is like having been to Paris and not seen The Eiffel Tower.

Milford Sound is a 4 hour drive from Queenstown - another Jauntaroo destination. The drive is one of the best journeys! The road passes through unspoiled mountain landscapes before entering the Homer Tunnel which emerges into rain-forest-carpeted canyons that descend to the sound.
