Full Description

When it comes to the famous Milford Sound, trust us when we say there is no better way to take it in than by helicopter. With unforgettable aerial views of iconic Mitre Peak, topped off with an alpine landing and a sweeping journey through the Hollyford Valley… you’ll be glad you chose this adventure.

Milford Sound is 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. After scouting the Sound, we cruise over the forest-lined Hollyford Valley, passing by numerous alpine lakes and waterfalls.


We will touch down high in the Alps, either on the way there or back, for a photo opportunity like you’ve never experienced.
