See Milford Sound’s soaring cliffs and waterfalls on a spectacular trip that explores Fiordland National Park by air and water. Combining a sightseeing flight and cruise—with included transportation from your hotel—is a great way to take in the vast scale of the region's alpine lakes, fjords, and glaciers. After touching down in Milford Sound, cruise the entire length in a boat for spotting wildlife and snapping photos.
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your centrally located Queenstown accommodations for transfer to the airport, where you’ll start with a preflight briefing on the scenic highlights of the route, including Skippers Canyon, the Paradise region, and Donne Glacier.

Enjoy spectacular views of the rugged southern terrain and then fly over Milford Sound itself before landing at the head of the fjord. Board a cruise boat for a trip down the length of Milford Sound, with reserved seating, hot drinks, and open-air decks that give up-close views of the fjord’s dramatic waterfalls and wildlife.

Following the cruise, lift off for the 35-minute return flight to Queenstown, taking a different route to see even more of the landscape, including towering Sutherland Falls. A driver will greet you at the airport for return transfer to you accommodations.
