During my gap year, I went on a short trip to South Island New Zealand with two of my close friends. One of the most memorable experiences of this trip was the Milford Sound boat cruise. Weaving our way through the cliff faces, getting sprayed by waterfalls and watching seals and dolphins play all while being surrounded by the natural beauty of it is an experience I will never forget. Highly Recommend.
Where: South Island, New Zealand
How: Was a coach cruise tour, took a coach from Queenstown to the Fiordland National Park allowing to be let off and explore certain areas. Then the boast cruise through Milford Sound and back to Queenstown on the coach. Many different companies do this particular trip, easy to book online in advanced or trough a travel agency in Queenstown.
