Visit Milford Sound, seen in Alien: Covenant (2017), in Fiordland National Park

Deep within Fiordland National Park lies Milford Sound, New Zealand’s most stunning natural attraction. With its magical combination of mountain peaks, ink-dark waters and superb dramatic forest-clad cliffs, it must be seen to be believed. Visit Milford Sound to experience the beauty of this pristine scenic destination, a must-do on every New Zealand itinerary.

Why might I recognise Mount Taranaki?

New Zealand’s beautiful landscape has also been used to a terrifying effect as was the case with legendary director Ridley Scott who shot Alien Covenant in Milford Sound. Scott was drawn to Milford Sound from the memory of a previous visit recalling the tremendous rain and the waterfalls that would then appear from everywhere down the mountainous terrain that surrounds. With its ever-present moody low-lying clouds, it made a perfect off-world backdrop to play out some Alien inspired thrills. Your experience will no doubt be less horrifying but equally memorable (in a good way) as it’s highly regarded as one of the most spectacular spots in the country.
