In the Queenstown area, we have three of the largest glaciers in New Zealand’s South Island and they are all above 6000 ft. Our Milford Sound and Glacier experience combines a scenic flight over the Southern Alps to the majestic Milford Sound, where you will fly over the Sound before heading north to the glacier areas. We will land beside one of the glaciers, providing the ideal opportunity for you to explore and take some memorable photographs.

Fly through the grandeur of the Southern Alps, over New Zealand's vibrant rainforests, frozen lakes, and the majestic Milford to touch down on an ancient glacier. Get to know the stunning geography of Western New Zealand from your friendly and knowledgeable pilot.

Take off from Queenstown in a state-of-the-art helicopter and soar over the staggering geographic diversity of New Zealand. Head for Milford Sound, a gorgeous fjord located in the south west of New Zealand's South Island. Learn about the exciting history of how it was named from your knowledgeable pilot.

Learn how the mountains and the sea contribute to the incredible beauty of New Zealand, forming the conditions for the saturated weather patterns that soak the region and provide enough moisture for the rainforests, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls. The versatility of the helicopter is admirably suited to this diverse terrain, ensuring enhanced visibility and safe travel as you navigate the geography.
