The navy blue water of this South Island fjord is framed by steep, glacier-cut cliffs, which are covered in greenery and hundreds of shimmering waterfalls. Book an overnight cruise that allows you to kayak and absorb this habitat without the crowds, and keep an eye out for New Zealand fur seals and rare Fiordland crested penguins swimming or resting on the shore.
