Pictures don’t quite do Milford Sound justice, but that’s not stopping people from trying.
The New Zealand landmark is the country’s most Instagrammed place in 2017, according to year-end geotagged data released by the company.
Widely referred to as the “eighth wonder of the world,” Milford Sound is a fjord located on New Zealand’s South Island.
With its towering mountain peaks and cascading waterfalls, it’s a breathtakingly beautiful destination — although, really, there’s nothing quite like actually being there.
Instagram featured Milford Sound as the top spot in a list of the 10 most popular locations for Instagramming in New Zealand, which is full to the brim of natural wonders. It’s what the country’s best known for, after all.
