Milford Sound Fly-Cruise-Fly

Take a stunning scenic flight to Milford Sound from Queenstown, including a 1.5 hour cruise.

We will fly you from Queenstown over the southern alps with spectacular views of lakes, forested river valleys, waterfalls, jagged razor backed ridge lines and snow covered peaks.

After landing at Milford we will choose whether to take the shuttle bus or, if time permits, take you on a short walk through the bush and foreshore to the cruise boat. Once on the boat you will take a leisurely cruise along the whole length of the sound. The boat has a Pita Pit restaurant on board, with freshly grilled wraps or pies, and complimentary tea and coffee. After the cruise your pilot will escort you back to the aircraft for the return flight to Queenstown along a different flight path.

Milford Sound Overflight

If you are pushed for time and cannot take in the cruise this trip provides a spectacular overview of Milford Sound and, of course, the endless panoramic views of lakes, forested river valleys, waterfalls, jagged razor backed ridge lines and snow covered peaks along the way.

Crossing the mountains at altitude from the Mount Aspiring National Park into the Fiordland National Park and then descending into Milford Sound to see close up views of Mitre Peak and Stirling Falls is an unforgettable, once in a lifetime, experience. After turning back into the sound over the Tasman Sea you will fly back to Queenstown via one of New Zealand's tallest waterfalls - the Sutherland Falls. All seats aboard our aircraft are window seats and your pilot will provide an interesting and informative commentary.
