Your New Zealand holiday is not complete without a visit to incomparable Fiordland. Located in the Southern-West most corner of New Zealand's South Island, Fiordland National Park occupies three and a half million acres of wild and virtually uninhabited Wilderness. The sheer magnificence, vastness and mystique of this Masterpiece of Creation will be etched forever on the mind of even the most seasoned traveler. Fiordland is a land of lofty, snow-capped Mountains, cloaked with dense and ancient forests, of glaciated valleys, exquisite lakes, crystal rivers and the classic coastal fiords of which Milford is the most spectacular.
