Milford Sound

New Zealand’s South Island’s Milford Sound is a fiord located southwest of the island. In addition to the towering Mitre Peak and the rainforests and waterfalls like Stirling and Bowen Falls that plunge down its sheer sides, the area is known for its spectacular scenery. Fur seals, penguins, and dolphins all call the fiord home. It’s possible to see rare black coral and other marine life at the Milford Discovery Centre and Underwater Observatory in New Zealand. A popular way to see the area is by boat.

The Indigenous name is Piopiotahi, referring to the long-extinct native bird.
