Te Anau Guide
Explore the Fiordland Region at New Zealand's Te Anau. This area has it all - including still waters, snow-capped peaks, and rainforest foliage. And there are plenty of ways to see the sights - like cruises, scenic flights, underwater diving, cycling, sea kayaking and walking.
The Glow Worm Caves are a must! This network of caves is hidden beneath the mountains of Lake Te Anau - and it's lit by thousands of glow worms!
Don't miss the mountainous peaks, cascading waterfalls, and alpine forests of Milford Sound. Take a scenic cruise and leisurely float by all of them!
Doubtful Sound is practically untouched by man. Enjoy the peaceful serenity of this natural wilderness!
You can’t miss great New Zealand cuisine on your trip to the Fiordlands! Stop by Redcliff Restaurant on Mokonui Street. Order the Fiordland venison, house smoked salmon, or hare backstrap for a true taste of the Fiordland Region! And, all of it comes with local produce.
Take a walk on the Kepler Track - one of the most famous tracks in New Zealand. You can check out all the fantastic scenery here, but it'll take at least three days to take it all in! This journey starts and ends at Lake Te Anau. You'll follow the lakeshore and pass beech forests, riverside clearings and a gorge!
The biggest variety of Te Anau hotels can be found on Lake Front Drive, overlooking Lake Te Anau. Luxmore Drive is another good option in the area.
There are also a number of bed and breakfasts on Dusky Street that will put you very close to both the lake and the snow-capped peaks.
If you're looking for cheaper accommodations, try the hotels and motels along Quintin Drive and Mokoroa Street.
