Milford Sound and Glaciers flight
Milford Sound Flights
Fly over majestic mountains to world-renowned Milford Sound
You will have a window seat with an unimpeded view as you fly to Milford Sound through a landscape of unbelievable grandeur and beauty. In flight you can see so much more than by road, as we go where no roads can.
Many people tell us that their flight through this magnificent landscape to Milford Sound is one the most memorable experiences of their New Zealand visit. On all our Milford Sound flights we return via the glaciers of the Olivine Ice Plateau and Barrier Range, weather permitting.
Milford Sound: Fly-Cruise-Fly
At Milford you will cruise on the 9.00am, 11.00am, 1.30pm or 3.00pm cruise boats during the high season (October - April) which cruise the full length of the fiord to the Tasman Sea and back to the Visitor Centre on the wharf. By flying with us you will avoid the tour bus crowds which arrive from Queenstown in the middle of the day. We think it is important that you relax and enjoy the wilderness. However, during low season (May to October) we cruise on the 11.00am and 1.30pm sailing.
Duration: Approximately 4 hours
