Fiordland National Park Attractions

In this rainforest setting, the flightless takahē can be found. The Department of Conservation Takahē Recovery Program is determined to see this rare bird grow in population. It was actually considered extinct once upon a time, but it was rediscovered in 1948. Apart from rare birds, the magnificent views of snowy mountain peaks and icy lakes make for a serene contemplative atmosphere. Snow and gusting winds can happen throughout the year, but it can also be sunny. Visitors should be prepared for every type of weather.
