Milford Sound is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Certainly it's one of the most photographed places in New Zealand.
The waters of the sound meet the pristine native bush that grows down the water's edge. Waterfalls cascade of the mountainsides and frame the iconic view of Mitre Peak that seemingly rises out of the ocean.
Most people take a cruise out onto the sound to get a different perspective of the scenery, to see resident dolphins and experience the scale of the environment.
