Milford Sound Lodge

‘Nestled beneath the towering peaks of the Darran Mountains, Milford Sound Lodge provides a fantastic base to experience the beauty and majesty of Fiordland National Park / Te Wahipounamu. To experience this World Heritage destination in a more authentic, personal way, stay a night or two. Don’t rush Milford Sound in a day – there are so many inspiring possibilities for outdoor adventure right on our doorstep. Or, choose to relax & enjoy the natural beauty surrounding the Lodge.’ This is an excerpt from the welcome page of the Milford Sound Lodge website.

We spent one night at a powered motorhome site in Milford Sound Lodge on 17 October 2015. It was one of the the best motorhome holiday park that we have stayed while travelling abroad on a motorhome. The scenery is exquisite. The Milford Sound fiord’s cliffs and the Cheddau River by the Lodge’s side make it a really stunning setting. You can sit by the river all day and just admire the pristine beauty…even in 5 degrees Celcius rain with wind gusts that can make a vehicle rollover!

Described by Rudyard Kipling as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’, Milford Sound was carved by glaciers during the ice ages. Milford Sound is breathtaking in any weather. The fiord’s cliffs rise vertically from the dark waters, mountain peaks scrape the sky and waterfalls cascade downwards, some as high as 1000 metres. When it rains in Milford Sound, and it often does, those waterfalls multiply with magnificent effect.
