Fjordland National Park Cruises

Fiordland National Park is New Zealand's most bewitching landscapes.Situated on the south-western coast of the South Island, New Zealand's largest national park was established in 1952 and designated a World Heritage Site in 1986. It consists of 12,116 sq km (4,678 sq miles) of subtropical woodland, beech forests, and alpine landscape on and around a number of fiords, headlands, and mountains. Its natural features also include Sutherland Falls, 580 m (1,904 ft) high, and other waterfalls and cascades, as well as limestone caves, containing glow-worms, which were discovered near Lake Te Anau in 1948. The park is noted for such native birds as the brown kiwi; the kea, the only alpine species of parrot; and the notornis or takahe, a swamp dwelling flightless rail now unique to the Fiordland, which was believed to be extinct until its rediscovery.
