The Fiordland National Park is full of lakes, rivers, and rain forests. The whole region is irrigated by trout filled rivers and creeks, and in winter, water streams across grassy fields in rivulets. This allows much of the greater region to be used for farming.

The region may have the highest concentration of sheep in the South Island, and at least three variety of deer and elk are kept behind fences, providing photo opportunities for quiet travelers. Despite having periods of heavy rain, the farming areas also experience droughts, and many farmers irrigate their land, especially dairy farmers.

Most visitors come to Te Anau for the walks, water, and other natural wonders.

What is the biggest challenge in choosing activities-attractions?

For many families the biggest challenge is time. Most families do not allow enough time in Fiordland to experience the most relaxing holiday possible.

It is part of the Southern Lakes district, which stretches from Wanaka, over to Queenstown, and down to Western Southland’s Lake Hauroko, New Zealand’s deepest lake. Discover more about local things to do on, in and above the water.

“The next morning, our Milford Sound plans were ruined due to snow, but Neil and Junko were happy to help us come up with an alternate plan (Doubtful Sound). Would definitely recommend for anyone going to Te Anau/Milford Sound!”
