  • Address: Fiordland National Park, Milford Sound
Set smack in the middle of Milford Sound, Mitre Peak is the undisputed star in an already impressive show. Craggy, lonely and often shrouded in mist, this iconic spire thrusts a mile upwards from the placid waters of the Sound. When you arrive in Milford Sound after the serpentine road through the mountains, Mitre Peak rises before you like a sentinel to congratulate you on making the journey. This is easily one of the most oft-photographed sites in New Zealand—and when you stare at its stoic profile against the water you can immediately 
understand why. 
 
To get a closer view of Mitre Peak, crane your neck upwards at the 5,500-foot summit during a cruise of Milford Sound. Or, paddle beneath its alpine shadow as you kayak in search of marine life.

Practical Info

Mitre Peak is located in Milford Sound about 73 miles from Te Anau. You can view the peak as part of a guided tour from either Te Anau or Queenstown, or drive yourself on the winding road that weaves its way toward the Sound. The summer months of December through March are the most popular time to visit, and while this can also be the wettest time of the year, it makes for dozens of wispy waterfalls that seem to cascade from the sky.
