Photo Spot Details

The entire trip from Te Anau to Milford Sound is beautiful. This photo was taken pretty early in the morning in August meaning that it’s winter in New Zealand. The first half of the trip to Milford was dry and the second half was a sort of snowy drizzle, although the road had been cleared of snow before we arrived.

Beware: There is a portion of the road in which you CANNOT stop (it’s very indicated) as it’s very avalanche prone. This photo was obviously not taken in that area. It was taken on a long strip of road where it was relatively easy to stop the camper van.

My recommendations: It is said that Milford Sound is one of the wettest areas of the world and that it rains 9 out of 10 days (we were told this by our guide on the ship) so be prepared. Also, there are no gas stations that I know of between Te Anau and Milford Sound, just a little one at Milford.
