Experience the glory of Milford Sound in style on an incredible half-day flight seeing tour with cruise included...
To start the journey, jump onboard the scenic flight and soak up unobstructed views of mountains and glaciers from your window seat while flying over a landscape of unbelievable grandeur and beauty, and enjoying informative commentary from your knowledgeable pilot.
This breathtaking flight takes you into Fiordland National Park, via the rugged West Coast and the Tasman Sea before descending into Milford Sound itself. Flying down the middle of the Fiord, with the dramatic sheer mountains either side and aerial views of the cascading Stirling Falls, you'll almost feel like you are in touching distance from Mitre Peak.
Next jump onboard your cruise with our cruise partner, Southern Discoveries where you'll discover the natural wonders of Milford Sound aboard a spacious, modern catamaran with open-air viewing decks.
Look out for fur seals, penguins, and dolphins while cruising the full length of the Fiord and basking in the beauty of sheer cliff faces and spectacular scenery as the backdrop. Your onboard skipper will provide full commentary and the catamaran will eventually cruise under a waterfall - a highlight for most!
Your spectacular journey isn't finished yet, your pilot will be waiting for you at the boat terminal to accompany you back to the airport. The breath-taking scenery continues as you end your day with a different flight path over this stunning World Heritage Area on the return flight to Queenstown.

Hi DM and thank you for your excellent review. It sounds like you had a beautiful day to fly and experience the southern Alps, glaciers and Milford Sound. As you mentioned flying in offers a completely different perspective and the views from our aircraft are truly unrivalled as depicted in your photo which is absolutely stunning. It's great to hear you enjoyed the cruise portion of your trip also, once in the fiord the wildlife can be easily observed and admired. Overall it sounds like you had a great time, thank you again for your review and for flying with Glenorchy Air. Kind regards, The Glenorchy Air Team
