Description

Don’t miss out on a spectacular scenic flight with Air Milford, to Milford Sound and back. Perfect for those who have little time or are on their final day in Queenstown and want to experience the spectacular flight. This 4-hour trip includes a landing in Milford Sound with time on the ground to soak up the surroundings, take pictures from the shore, or have delicious coffee and cake at the Discover Milford Cafe (at own expense) before your return scenic flight to Queenstown.

Each tour begins with a complimentary pickup from your central Queenstown accommodation (charges may apply to rural locations) in morning or afternoon. After check-in completion, your Air Milford pilot will give a thorough pre-flight briefing on the route and scenic highlights likely to be encountered.

These include the famous Skippers Canyon, the Paradise region, recently made popular as film locations for Lord of the Rings/Hobbit Trilogies, and the Donne glacier among many other awe-inspiring features. Your 35-minute flight concludes with an over-flight of the fjord of Milford Sound, prior to landing.

After 2-hours on the ground taking in the scenery and taking pictures, the second leg of your excursion commences with the return flight, which takes in many of the pristine alpine lakes and waterfalls that Fiordland National Park is recognized for, including the Sutherland Falls, which span 580m (1904ft).

After enjoying your scenic flight and landing back in Queenstown you will be returned to your accommodation to complete the journey.
