Milford Sound Scenic Flyover
- Duration: 80 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Queenstown, NZ
Experience unimpaired views from your window seat as you fly through a landscape of unbelievable grandeur and beauty, above mountains and glaciers onboard our fixed-wing aircraft. Your knowledgeable, highly skilled local pilot will provide interesting and informative commentary during this 80-minute flight of a lifetime.
Departing from Queenstown Airport our preferred flight path heads north over the Coronet Peak skifield, historic Skippers Canyon and the Shotover River - the second richest gold-bearing river in the world. Enjoy panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and glacier-fed braided rivers as you fly along the Dart River Valley into the World Heritage Area of Mt. Aspiring National Park. With endless snow-covered mountains, the Olivine Ice Plateau, Mt. Tutoko and the Tutoko Glacier just some of the incredible highlights along the way, it really is an unforgettable experience.
The breath-taking scenery continues into Fiordland National Park, out over the rugged West Coast and the Tasman Sea before a quick U-turn descending into Milford Sound itself. Flying down the middle of the Fiord, with the dramatic sheer mountains either side, aerial views of the cascading Stirling Falls, you'll almost feel like you are, not literally, in touching distance from Mitre Peak.
Your spectacular journey isn't finished yet, following a different flight path over this stunning World Heritage Area on the return to Queenstown, with our pilot's firm favourite - Lake Quill and the Sutherland Falls.
Because of the weather-dependent nature of flying in the Southern Alps to Milford Sound, we cannot guarantee flight paths are always the same but we do guarantee an extra spring in your step and the biggest smile on your face when you land from this flight of a lifetime.
We're all here for the view and every seat on every plane is a window seat.
