Milford is by far the best known of all of the fiords and the only one that can be accessed by road. It is approximately 16km from the head of the fiord to the open sea, which means visitors can comfortably travel the length of the fiord to open ocean and return on one of the many cruise options available in one and a half to two hours cruising time. Milford Sound luxury tours can create a journey to the Milford Sound by road or by air.
The Maori were the first to attribute the creation of the fiords to a "titanic mason", Tute Rakiwhanoa who hued out the steep sided valleys with keen edged adzes. No other explanation seems to fit, as it is impossible to comprehend the sheer breadth of geological events that created this seemingly perfect sculpture, as sheer cliffs rise vertically upward from the ocean. Touring Treasures' Milford Sound travel service will create a memorable trip for you.
