The UNESCO-listed landscapes of Milford Sound are even more spectacular from above. Take to the skies on a 1-hour and 20-minute round-trip flight from Queenstown; spot natural wonders such as Mitre Peak and Bowen Falls from the air; and enjoy unbeatable aerial views of the mountains, lakes and fjords of the Fiordland National Park.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pick-up from your Queenstown hotel and a short transfer to the hangar to board your flight. Take off for a 40-minute flight to Milford Sound and admire spectacular views over the Fiordland National Park as you swoop over the snow-capped peaks, glittering lakes, and dramatic fjords.

As you circle the fjord, your pilot will point out natural wonders like the 525-foot (160-meter) high Bowen Falls, the striking hanging valley of Sinbad Gully, and Mount Pembroke. Continue towards the Tasman Sea coast, passing over the distinctive 5,551-foot (1,692 meter) mountain of Mitre Peak, one of New Zealand’s most photographed landmarks, and see the dramatic approach witnessed by the first settlers at the end of the 18th-century. As you loop back toward Queenstown, enjoy magnificent views of the Sutherland Falls and Stirling Falls.

After touching back down in Queenstown, your driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

We were supposed to do the fly-cruise-fly tour but because of the weather we flew, walked around for 30min and flew back. It was still a wonderful experience and we are glad we were able to do it. The arrival on Milford sound is gorgeous...More

No comms after flight

We left a pair of glasses and tried to contact them but calls drop to voice mail, no call backs after leaving voice mail. I guess they don’t really care once you are landed.
