This story from the Telegraph will give you an idea of just how majestic the views are -- the writer describes some of the scenery, comparing it to Switzerand and Scotland, but is lost for words at the beauty of Milford Sound:
"As a spectacular scene of towering, snow-capped mountains surrounded by an electric-blue glacial lake unfolded before us, we did what any self-respecting Brits would do: we pulled over for a cuppa.

We started on the eastern flank, in Christchurch, then headed south-west to Queenstown – a little slice of Switzerland lying in the shadows of a mountain range justifiably named the Remarkables – before winding toward the island’s scenic big-hitter: Milford Sound. Even the four-and-a-half-hour drive down from Queenstown is outstanding, and considered one of the most breathtaking in the world. It starts off looking like Scotland – only bigger, and flooded – then moves up a gear to resemble Norway. Once you’ve got close to Milford the comparisons stop – there just isn’t anywhere else like it." (Read more at the Telegraph)
