‘A cherished corner of the world where mountains and valleys compete with each other for room, where scale is almost beyond comprehension, rainfall is measured in metres and scenery encompasses the broadest width of emotions.’

This is how the author of the book “Mountains of Water – The Story of Fiordland National Park” described this stunning National Park. First reserved in 1904 and covering over 1.2 million hectares the Fiordland National Park was established in 1952. The largest National Park in New Zealand it stretches from Martins Bay in the north to Waitutu Forest in the south and from the mighty eastern lakes of Te Anau, Manapouri, Monowai and Hauroko to the fourteen spectacular fiords of the west coast.
