Overview
Soak in panoramic views of New Zealand's South Island during your 35-minute one-way flight to Queenstown from the Milford Sound. The scenic flight follows a route over Fiordland National Park, the Southern Alps, Lake Wakatipu, and Sutherland Falls, before landing at Queenstown airport, where a driver transfers you to your hotel.
What to Expect
Confirm your flight's departure (which depends on the day's weather) by calling ahead before your flight. Once confirmed, make your own way to the Milford Sound Airport to board your small airplane.

Take the scenic route to Queenstown when you glide over the majestic landscape of Fiordland National Park. Capture aerial photos of snow-capped mountains, sparkling fjords, and alpine lakes, and see features such as the Tasman Sea, Southern Alps, Lake Wakatipu, and Sutherland Falls.

Touch down at Queenstown Airport and disembark from your aircraft. Transfer to the waiting vehicle for transportation to your hotel in Queenstown where your tour ends.

Amazing day all round

Well worth the 05:30 alarm call for the 06:30 hotel pick up. 4 hour coach ride with spectacular scenery and we arrived at Milford Sound. Such a dramatic view of the sound and mountains, some still covered in snow. Light rain and misty cloud added...More

Sensational views and a smooth ride...

Passing on the bus ride back and instead taking a plane ride with Tom over Milford Sound and back to Queenstown was easily one of the best decisions I have ever made. New Zealand had been my dream destination since I was a little kid,...More
