Lake Te Anau
Lake Te Anau is a vast glacial lake in Southland, the second largest in New Zealand and the largest in the South Island. The North, Middle and South Fjords on the western side of the lake are the only inland fjords in New Zealand. There are many fascinating activities on offer, including a tour of the Te Anau Caves on the west shore, which give the lake its name, and a Great Walk through the beautiful wilderness of Te Wahipounamu, a World Heritage Site.
Fjordland stretches along the west coast of Southland, the southernmost tip of New Zealand's South Island. The rugged terrain consisting of the Southern Alps and the intricate coastal fjords has created a magnificent wilderness with few inhabitants. The area is one of the largest national parks in the world and is popular for activities that allow visitors to experience the great outdoors, such as sightseeing boats that take visitors on a tour of the many waterfalls that flow down from the steep mountain sides into the intricate sea.
