New Zealand Milford Sound1

(1 vote)

New Zealand is a land of great contrasts and diversity. Active volcanoes, spectacular caves, deep glacier lakes, verdant valleys, dazzling fjords, long sandy beaches, and the spectacular snowcapped peaks of the Southern Alps/Kā Tiritiri o te Moana on the South Island—all contribute to New Zealand’s scenic beauty. New Zealand also has a unique array of vegetation and animal life, much of which developed during the country’s prolonged isolation. It is the sole home, for example, of the long-beaked, flightless kiwi, the ubiquitous nickname for New Zealanders.
Remote and rugged, the inner reaches of the 14 fiords of south-west New Zealand are unique. Fiordland’s climate, vegetation and topography have combined with oceanic influences to create habitats and biological communities that have no counterpart anywhere in the world. Fiordland is one of the wettest places in New Zealand: over 7.5 metres of rain falls on this precipitous landscape every year. Huge volumes of water, discoloured after passing through native forest and layers of rotting leaf litter, flow down into the fiords.
