Dramatic and beautiful Fiordland on the southwest coast of the South Island has achieved World Heritage status and is often called the Sightseeing and Walking Capital of the world.

Not content with simply being a beautiful destination, the area is also home to rare native birds and sea life. Discover it on foot, by sea kayak or boat, or take to the air. Tour providers are readily available.
