Fiords of Fiordland
Experience the real wilderness!
Fiordland is part of Te Wähipounamu Natural World Heritage. Many people know Milford Sound, however you can experience the real wilderness within the other fiords, particularly Doubtful Sound, Dusky Sound and Preservation Inlet. While the whole area is on land inaccessible, you can take a multi-day cruise. Fiords have long arms penetrating deep into the land. Surrounding nature is unique and considered as the world’s best modern example reminiscent of the old prehistoric Gondwanaland. Even though you can fly in a helicopter from Te Anau to the fiords within an hour, they are regarded as special as remote Amazon or Alaska’s wilderness.

Cruises on fiords of Fiordland
Take a cruise with us, let us organise all logistics on your behalf. We personally know local vessels, we know advantages and disadvantages of individual boats. Do you prefer ensuite cabins and more space? Or comfort is not your priority and you prefer the closest contact with the wilderness? We were lucky to cruise all over the fiords and with focus on nature and photography we know where to go, when and what to see. This area also has a rich human history. Maori were visiting Fordland to collect tangiwai (bowenite or greenstone). The first house and ship built by Europeans in New Zealand come from Dusky Sound.
