Visit the Doubtful Sound
Known for its wilderness and wildlife, Doubtful Sound is the second largest of the 14 fiords in Fiordland National Park; three times longer and ten times larger than Milford Sound.
Practically untouched by man, this is an unspoiled wilderness of many moods. The physical grandeur of towering peaks descending into moody waters, outstanding waterfalls, ice-age valleys and fiords clad with ancient vegetation create a powerful atmosphere of solitude and serenity.
Sometimes called 'the Sound of Silence', there is a cloistered serenity within Doubtful Sound that contrasts with Milford Sound. The fiord is rich in flora and fauna, New Zealand Fur Seals and Fiordland Crested Penguins can be seen on many of the small islets at the entrance of the fiord.
There are many ways to experience Doubtful Sound - by kayak or cruise, as a day trip or on an overnight experience.
