The Milford Sound

The Milford Sound (which is actually a fiord, not a sound--see video) was absolutely stunning. We took a bus ride there from Lake Te Anau and saw some amazing sights. We then took a 2 hour cruise through the sound seeing seals, waterfalls, birds, and other amazing things. You can do the Milford Track walk which is a 5 day adventure and Shawn and I want to go back and do it!


  1. Watching your video I can feel the fresh chill in the air. It looks pristine. Amazing!

  2. Maybe the Milford Sound (which is not actually a sound - so interesting! Always learning fun things!) 5-day walk will be a family event!
    So jealous of the adorable seals you saw? Do they brutally club baby seals in New Zealand like they do in Canada? Did you know that the seal hunt this year in Canada is being called off (I think?) because the ice is melting so much that they are all falling off and dying before the clubbers can get out there to brutally slaughter them?

    Anyhow, those are some GORGEOUS pictures!
