A vast fjord occupies the southwest coast of New Zealand's South Island. Milford Sound, one of the many inlets, is one of the most famous natural scenic spots in New Zealand. The countless waterfalls created by the incessant rainfall, cascading 1,000 meters down the steep mountain sides directly from the inlet, are a sight to behold, and the cruise ships that take you around the magnificent nature are very popular.
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.
