Visited on Friday 4th May. We did a coach trip from Te Anau and then a boat cruise on Milford Sound. There is so much to see, make sure this is one of the places you visit when on the South Island.

There's nothing like Milford Sound. Stunning views and fresh mountain air. What's not to love? You might even see a rainbow if you're lucky :)
