Fiordland sounds like the name of a theme park but is in fact the Fiordland National Park in New Zealand which if I understand correctly contains 14 'Fiords' or 'Sounds'.

Today's activity was a majestically slow scenic cruise through three of those sounds each of which was more spectacular to the eye than its predecessor. The third sound we visited was Milford Sound, a justifiably renowned scenic location. Some of its mountains, jutting straight from the water were said to be the tallest of their type in the world.

Here are some shots of Milford Sound.
