Relish in the opportunity to do Milford a little differently as you capture a different perspective away from the crowds.

Beginning with a scenic flight onboard our fixed-wing aircraft, soak up unobstructed views over Lake Wakatipu, the glacier-fed braided rivers of the Dart River Valley, and into the World Heritage Area of Mt. Aspiring National Park. With endless snow-covered mountains, the Olivine Ice Plateau, Mt. Tutoko, and the Tutoko Glacier being just some of the incredible highlights along the way, it really is an unforgettable experience.

You then have the opportunity to explore the shores for approximately 2 hours, with a couple of short walks, taking you to unmissable vantage points and through the awesome wilderness along the sandy shores of majestic Milford Sound, offering some of the best views of iconic Mitre Peak.

Learn more about the area through the interpretive visitor panels and take a moment to enjoy the best seat in the house, the Milford Sound swing. Before meeting your pilot for another epic 45-minute return scenic flight to Queenstown.

Cancelled - but offered better flight

Milford flight cancelled due to bad weather, but offered better trip after consulting the pilot. We would highly recommend Glenorchy Air.
