1. Cruise the Sounds

Location:Fiordland National Park

While it may be the most obvious way to take in Milford Sound's many wonders, that doesn't make taking a cruise into its heart any less of a must-do, and there are a variety of different cruise options available to the public conducted by different tour operators, each of which offer a slightly different focus on certain aspects of the fjords. Your choice of itinerary here will most likely depend on a combination of your free time and your budget. Shorter day trips allow you to see all its essentials up close in the most compressed amount of time possible while staying overnight and enjoying a dinner on the water before admiring a sunrise the following day is well worth the investment.

2. Hike the Milford Track

Location:Fiordland National Park

Perhaps the most famous walking track in all of New Zealand, and one of the most highly-regarded in the world, the Milford Track is an epic stretch of exploration just begging to be experienced. Winding its way through a breathtaking landscape in the heart of the Fiordland National Park, the track stretches over the course of 53.5 kilometres across some truly untouched, wild NZ countryside and allows close-up encounters with an array of stunning flora and fauna.

3. Go on a scenic flight

Location:Queenstown Airport, Queenstown

The rugged scenery of Fiordland is on such a large and impressive scale that it's often difficult to take it all in. Taking a scenic flight with Milford Sound Scenic Flights is one of the best ways to take the maximum amount of spectacles. From high above, the magnificent alpine scenery looks vastly different and it makes it much easier to appreciate the sheer size and scale of the various peaks, glaciers and the waters of Milford Sound itself.

4. Visit Te Anau Glow Worm Caves

Location:Lake Te Anau

Te Anau's glow worm caves are an essential attraction while you're in this part of Fiordland and before you head off to the Sound itself. Located on the aptly-named Lake Te Anau, this impressive limestone cavern is one of the best and rarest examples of a living cave network still being formed that is highlighted by its most obvious and magical nature feature, its colony of glimmering glow worms which line the walls of the Glowworm Grotto.

5. Go kayaking

Location:Sandy Brown Road, Te Anau

Milford Sound is a destination that already feels quite isolated from civilisation due to the sheer magnitude of its environmental features. However, if you're looking to take that feeling one step further, then kayaking its waters on a tour with Sea Kayaking Fiordland Wilderness Experiences offers much more of an intimate, up-close-and-personal adventure. Kayaking also allows you to approach several of the thundering waterfalls that are characteristic of the region while presenting the chance for some truly memorable wildlife encounters as it's not uncommon to come into close contact with the likes of seals, dolphins and even penguins if you're lucky.
