What a magnificent day trip 🥰 Te Anu Lake, Eglinton Valley (rainforest mountains): Mt Earl, In Fiordland National Park (12.500 km²) we started with: Mirror lakes & Lake Gunn 😍 Monkey Creek (Mt Christina) - crossing the southern Alps (yes it is snow on the top in summer) thru a tunnel 🏔 And the boat cruise at stunning Milford Sound (Piopiotahi) was absolutely worth it to get up so early 😅😍🏞❤️

An amazing tour from the time you hop on board the coach to the cruise. Gill our coach Driver/Guide was excellent with her commentary throughout the trip to Milford Sound. She made a few stops for us to get some amazing photos. Milford Sound is stunning!
