TRAVEL & LEISURE

Doubtful Sound

You’ll need a full day to cross Lake Manapouri, drive over Wilmot Pass and then set off for a three-hour catamaran cruise through the sounds. It’ll probably rain, but it’ll be beyond beautiful.

The second largest fiord in Fiordland National Park, Doubtful Sound is a remote and unscathed slice of paradise, where you are invited to put aside your phones, cameras and busy lives and bask in raw wilderness. It's not the easiest place to get to, accessible only via boat and coach, but, trust us, it's worth the effort. 

There are a number of cruise options available, from day trips to overnight stays, you can even book a kayaking adventure and camp overnight in Doubtful Sound. Due to its isolation, the native flora and fauna remain relatively undisturbed. That means you can expect to see abundant wildlife, like bottlenose dolphins and fur seals, at play. While cruising, keep an eye out for the rare Fiordland Crested Penguin.
