What to see in Fjordland
The Fjordlands is where one can truly get up close and personal with the beautiful landscape which New Zealand has to offer. The region is renowned for its beautiful mountains, great lakes and spectacular waterways, all which make the Fjordlands the spectacle it has come to be for tourists and locals alike. A great way to get around and see the best of what is on offer is to take a cruise, which last from half a day to several nights. In this way one can see some of the most popular attractions such as Te Anau, but also experience some of the lesser known attractions such as Lake Manapouri, which is smaller but just as pristine.
Known as the walking capital of the world, three of New Zealand's nine Great Walks are located in Fjordland. The Milford Track is New Zealand's most famous walk, which has been thrilling travellers for more than 100 years, but there are also many more famous trails such as the Kepler Track which takes you through mountains, native forest, waterfalls and glacier-carved valleys. The Routeburn Track is one of the shorter Great Walks, which links Mount Aspiring National Park with Fjordland National Park, showing off mountain peaks and jewel-like lakes along the way. And if all this hiking doesn't interest you, there are also many other attraction such as Jet Boating, guided cave tours and sea kayaking for visitors to enjoy while in the Fjordlands.
