After a big day in the mountains I decided it was time to enjoy some more relaxing activities and check out the tourist trail in Milford Sound.

So we drove down to Milford Sound and took a boat trip through the sound and out to the Tasman sea.

We saw lots of wildlife and jaw dropping scenery, Milford Sound is definitely worth the hype!

After an amazing and relaxing day, we decided to watch the tourists from above, so we headed up to the Homer Saddle.

The main road to Milford Sound cuts through a tunnel, and above lies one of the most nauseatingly exposed ridges I have ever crossed- The Homer Saddle Traverse!

The ridge was lots of fun, and a nice short day out, allowing us plenty of time afterwards to enjoy the long drive back to Wanaka
