Such a stunning experience!

Such an amazing experience! First it was too cloudy in Milford Sound but luckily it cleared up so that we were able to fly there. Jake was a great pilot and flew us safely to Milford and back. He also informed us about all the mountains and rivers we were seeing from above and was there for some jokes and laughs. Can definitely recommend it, the view is stunning!

Jake takes great pride in sharing his knowledge with passengers such as yourself and was thrilled to hear you enjoyed his commentary. We hope to see you again one day soon. Thanks again - the team at Southern Alps Air!

Absolutely stunning

A fantastic and spectacular experience run by a very friendly and professional operator. Words, nor even photos can't describe the beauty and grandeur of the sights that you see on this flight. There is a great variety of scenery (mountains, glaciers, fjords, ocean, rivers and lakes etc) and the duration of the trip (90 mins) is perfect. Every seat is a window seat and makes for many great photos
