Full Description

One of the most famous fjords in the world, and a must-see for every visitor to New Zealand, Milford Sound is worth the hype. This flight gives you the best seat in the house to take in the splendour of this iconic landscape.

Our journey starts in Queenstown, lifting off from the airport, darting across Lake Whakatipu, and cresting the Richardson Mountains towards Milford Sound for a landing. After scouting the Sound, we cruise over the forest-lined Hollyford Valley, passing by numerous alpine lakes and waterfalls.


At the end of your flight, we will touch down high in our exclusive landing location, The Earnslaw Burn for a photo opportunity like you’ve never experienced. Adding to your day of adventure, this spot is nestled in the rugged landscapes of Fiordland and is just waiting to be explored, the perfect upgrade from the Earnslaw Burn Express Flight.
