Skip the rings hype and head to real beauty. This is a world heritage site for very good reason. One of the boat tours provides an expanded perspective

South Island is amazing and the incredible sights within the Park go on and on. Including within this our visits to Milford Sound and Doubtful Sound. Highly recommend staying in Te Anau to cut down on travel, instead of doing day trips from Queenstown.
