Fiordland is the stunningly beautiful south-west region of New Zealand's South Island. The area is nearly deserted, with no towns, and most of the region only has access by air or sea. The entire region is covered by the largest national park in New Zealand. It is extremely mountainous (the Southern Alps), with some of the highest waterfalls in the world and some of the deepest plunges going down below the water into deep ice-carved fjords. The most famous of the fjords are Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound, where you can go out on boats and see the marine wildlife of the region. The region also has some of New Zealand's best tramps, such as the Milford, Kepler, Hollyford and Routeburn Tracks (one way multi-day hikes with well maintained huts).
