It's an undisputed fact that the best views of New Zealand's scenery are achieved from the air. Experience unparalleled views of Fiordland National Park on a round-trip scenic flight from Queenstown to Milford Sound. From your window seat, listen to the pilot’s commentary as you peer out over striking mountain peaks, lakes, and waterfalls. Plus, get an up-close glimpse on a cruise from Mitre Peak to the Tasman Sea.
  • Flight and cruise combo grants unique mix of air and sea views
  • Visit Milford Sound, the Tasman Sea, and the Southern Alps in a single day
  • Pilot commentary guides visitors on each flight 
  • Convenient hotel pick-up, drop-off, and choice of departure time
What to Expect
Your trip begins with hassle-free hotel pick-up in Queenstown. Once you arrive at the hangar, check in and board your aircraft—equipped only with window seats so that all passengers can take in the panorama below. On the first flight to Milford Sound, you have a bird’s eye view of the dramatic landscapes of Fiordland National Park, guided by the commentary of your pilot. After landing, begin your cruise along the untouched waters of Milford Sound, traveling from Mitre Peak to the Tasman Sea. Your return flight takes a different path, soaring above the snowy Southern Alps. Once you land in Queenstown, enjoy transport back to your hotel.
