Here, you can expect high mountains, blue lakes, mighty fjords and rainforest-like woods. This region could be protected from anthropogenic influences on the bigger picture. The landscape decreased mainly from glaciers which ate into the stone over the years and left indescribable fjords. The most popular fjord is Milford Sound in the North of the Park. Its humid woods are home to numerous bird species such as the Takhae bird or the Kakapo parrot. The Takhae bird was believed to be extinct for over 40 years before it was seen in the park again. Both species are not able to fly. In the waters there can be found dolphins and seals. This region is suitable for alpine hikes, kayaking and diving; moreover, you can join one of the numerous boat trips through the fjords. Furthermore, long hikes along mountains covered in snow and bold waterfalls are offered.
