Road trip from Christchurch to Queenstown
Milford Sound – Fiordland National Park
I’m currently on vacation, down in New Zealand. A country that was on my wish and must go list for quite some time. It’s been a wonderful experience and a must for those who have the chance to come, specially for those who love nature and breathtaking landscapes, amazing lakes with the most clear and clean water, mountain sports, skiing…and so on.
Most of these photos were taken on the road, between Timaru and Queenstown, both located in the South Island. Timaru a very small town, mostly with farm lands. We had a quick stop to visit a good friend of mine, then we drove to our destination, Queenstown.
The city of Queenstown, seats on the shore of the Lake Wakatipu, surrounded by the impressive Southern Alps and it’s home of the famous Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards. From here you can visit the breathtaking fiord “Milford Sound” at the Fiordland National Park.
Two options to visit the “Milford Sound”: or by Bus, affordable one, but it will take 5 hours of driving, 2 hours on a boat and 5 hours back to Queenstown. Or the one that we took, more expensive, but amazing experience, by airplane, with AIRmilford, check their web page, www.airmilford.co.nz, the team is amazing. Only with a 35 minutes flight to go and back and the 2 hour cruise.
I hope you like the photos that I’m sharing with you on this post.
Thank you for stopping and for reading!
