Te Anau, New Zealand
June 13, 2009 2 Comments
Te Anau provides a base for exploring parts of the Fiordland National Park one of New Zealand’s greatest wilderness zones. From here it is an easy 2½ hour drive to Milford Sound and 20 minutes by coach to Lake Manapouri and the start of a Doubtful Sound excursion.
If it is serenity you are after, then the Doubtful Sound can provide the perfect place for quiet reflection amongst the fiord’s rich flora and fauna. Milford Sound is spectacular regardless of the weather – the many waterfalls are in full force when raining, and on a clear day the reflections of Mitre Peak against the fiord’s waters are outstanding.
Lake Manapouri and Lake Te Anau are ideal holiday locations for all seasons. During summer the lakes cater for all water activities and during the winter these houses are retreats from which to admire views of the surrounding snow-capped mountains.
