If you’ve been following my trip to New Zealand and Australia then you know that our next journey was to take a helicopter tour of Milford Sound – the 8th Wonder of the World.
The drive to Milford Sound was 4 hours one way so in the interest of time getting there by helicopter made the most sense. Since it gets on average 252 inches (6,412 mm) of rainfall a year it’s considered one of the wettest places in the world. Weather is unpredictable causing helicopter tours to be cancelled often. Fortunately the day we went the weather was beautiful but windy!
