Kayaking in Milford Sound, Fiordland National Park, Southland New Zealand
It consists part of Te Wahipounamu World Heritage Area, offering a getaway to awe-inspiring landscapes and magnificent sites of wild nature. Milford Sound is a fiord located on the upper part of Fiordland National Park, accessed only through Milford Road from Te Anau. It is regarded as a top attraction worldwide, offering landscapes of unique beauty and wild nature.
It has two permanent waterfalls and several temporary ones, created during heavy rainfalls. The fiord has an exquisite marine life, making it one of the best destinations for kayakers. Its uniqueness is that the water from the rainfalls does not mix with sea water. Consequently, it stays on the surface preventing the sunlight from reaching great depths, creating a unique marine world.
Paddle inside the fiord and you might get lucky enough and see dolphins and penguins!
