Milford Sound. One of the countless "Eighth Wonder of the World"s, and apparenty very famous. So straight after completing the Routeburn Track, I drove to Milford Harbour, and learned that the last cruise would depart in 15 minutes, With a ticket in my hand I walked to the ship, boarded and the ship departed. Great timing after a great walk!
It is hard to tell what makes Milford Sound so special. It is unique in nature, and you have to experience it yourself: breathing the waterfalls, gasping at the high cliffs emerging from the water, etc.
