The South Island – Te Anau and Fiordland

The second phase of our trip involved spending a night in Te Anau in a lake front backpackers, and from there heading out to Milford sound. The drive out to Milford has to be one of the most spectacular drives I have ever made, with new vista’s opening up after every bend. Hannah and I had decided on doing an overnight cruise out on Milford sound, so we opted for the cheaper option of the two available to us. We arrived ready to check in on our boat to find out that we had been upgraded to the more expensive option. Usually it costs 490 dollars per person per night!… we did not pay anywhere near that much, so it was a pretty sweet upgrade. The package included a buffet dinner and breakfast. The weather was also remarkably clear, with the guides constantly reminding us how this never happens in the Milford Sound.

Enjoy the photos, which to be honest, do not do justice to the spectacular  scenery.
