Describing it as “New Zealand’s crown jewel”, Big Seven Travel placed it at number nineteen on their list “The Top 50 Most Beautiful Places In The World”.

Big Seven Travel wrote: “Home to Mitre Peak, the majestic fiords of Milford and Doubtful Sound plus the beautiful lakeside towns of Te Anau and Manapouri, there’s lots to love. Likewise, the area is full of untouched forest, towering mountains and a wild, rugged atmosphere. Thanks to its bountiful hiking trails and wows at every turn, Fiordland is considered the sightseeing and walking capital of the world.”

We certainly agree with all of that! Fiordland National Park is preeeetty incredible. I mean, just look at it!

Fiordland National Park saw off competition from the likes Mostar (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Mu Cang Chai (Vietnam) and Marrakesh (Morocco), which were placed at 20, 21 and 22, respectively.


The National Park was also narrowly beaten by Boracay (The Philippines) at 18, Positano (Italy) at 17, and Chefchaouen (Morocco).

Taking the glory of the top spot is Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, which is absolutely mesmerising, to be fair. They pipped the Faroe Islands and Grand Teton National Park (Wyoming) to clinch the crown.

Still, being in the top 20 most beautiful places in the world is no easy task, so we’ll take it. We didn’t need reminding how stunning New Zealand is, after all!
