2nd go at this flight. Bad weather last year meant we missed out. Pays to have a spare day if you can. This flight was amazing although Milford had a bit of low cloud obscuring the view. I’d recommend the fly in boat trip if you really want to see Milford. This flight focussed more on the out of reach small mountain glaciers up towards Mt Aspiring. Beautiful remote otherwise impossible to see parts of the Southern Alps of Aotearoa.
Must do. Once in a lifetime activity. Fly over beautiful mountain ranges and glaciers for 40 minutes then 2 hour cruise on the Milford Sound and then fly back alone the coast line about 30 minutes back to Queenstown. I hate small planes but this trip was awesome. You can get there by bus, but it is 10 hour round trip from Queenstown and you get none of the scenic flight.
This is one of the best things I’ve ever done! The flight alone was a fascinating experience. Flying over the glaciers and then on to Milford Sound for the cruise. If you do anything on a trip to NZ do this! The family run company were super nice and made me feel really safe even though I’m sometimes a jittery on flights. Absolutely recommend this!
We wanted to save some time from going to Milford Sound, so instead of going with a coach, we decided to go by plane. View is gorgeous, love the fact that they will take you throw different route when you come back. No need to say how beautiful Milford Sound is, definitely worth the money to take the flight.
The pilot was very knowledgeable about the area and gave a good commentary as we flew as did the cruise captain who took the boat right under the waterfalls
