  • You must be 18 years of age and present a valid photo ID in order to consume alcohol.
  • Return transport is available from most centrally located Queenstown hotels. Please arrange pickup from your hotel or a nearby location when you call to confirm your reservation.
  • Because of the weather dependant nature of flying over the Southern Alps to Milford Sound, we recommend booking in for your first available day in Queenstown. So that, should the weather be unfavorable for flying on the first day, you will have flexibility to roll on to a following fine weather day.

  • If you are prone to motion sickness, please take any necessary precautions. Consult a medical professional before taking any medication.

What you can expect

Observe the outstanding natural beauty of Milford Sound, highly acclaimed as one of the world's top travel destinations, from the air and on water. Take to the skies, fly over the dramatic landscape of forests and mountains, and then enjoy a cruise over the glacial waters.

Described by the distinguished author Rudyard Kipling as the eighth wonder of the world, Milford Sound is one of the country's top destinations. Flying over the fjord reveals panoramas of the entire area; gaze out from your plane and admire steep hillsides covered with forest, snow-capped peaks, and glacial lakes nestling in the dramatic landscape.

Once you're back on the ground, board your cruise boat to explore the famous inlet from the water. Keep your eyes peeled for native wildlife as dolphins play in the wake of the boat, seals and penguins bask on the shores, and a variety of birds circle overhead.

As you begin to understand the sheer scale of this majestic area, appreciate both unique perspectives of being in the air and on the ground. Enjoy one last look at the striking scenery on your flight back to Queenstown.

It was great. Wonderful flight views and boat trip. Only criticism is that we were kept waiting almost an hour while the pilot looked unsuccessfully for a new add on passenger for the return flight. There was no place to sit while waiting and a heavy set lady was having trouble standing that long.

Canceled the trip without even contacting us, we called them & they very rudely told us it was canceled & proceeded to hang up on me before discussing a refund or re-booking.. Poor service, went with milfordflights instead & was great service!

We had booked flights in and out of Milford Which turned out to be great as the road in has been closed for some time due to landslides and flooding. One of the best experiences of my life. Would recommend to anybody. Totally over the top. EXCELLENT!!
