5. Milford Sound cruise, New Zealand
“There’s a reason it’s called the 8th wonder of the world,” boasts the tagline for Real Journeys’ Milford Sound sailings.
And what better way is there to get closer to this wondrous titan of New Zealand than by spending time on its very waters? Hopeful travellers are spoiled for choice when it comes to cruising through Milford Sound, as there are too many to choose from.
One quick day trip (an hour and 40 minutes) will bring you to the best sights such as sheer cliffs, massive waterfalls, glaciers and wildlife like seals and dolphins. Another overnight cruise includes guided access through the famous Milford Track, a ride on a tendercraft on the shores and even swimming in the fjord’s pure waters.
