Description

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!

The cruise was canceled so only did the flight tour with short walk around Milford Sound. The flight tour was great
