Full description
Begin your adventure by soaring over the shores of Lake Te Anau. It’s a great way to get a feel for the grand Fiordland scenery right from the get-go. Once airborne again, fly high above the remote Wick Mountains and the rugged landscapes that surround the range. Look out for Lake Iceberg, which does exactly what its name says — grows icebergs. Soak up stunning views of Mitre Peak and Milford Sound as they unfold below; circuit the fiord to follow the route of the Milford Track. Soar over the McKinnon Pass — one of the tougher parts of the Milford — followed by a landing at Lake Quill, a hanging lake that is the source of the famous Sutherland Falls. Milford Sound itself is more than 9 miles long, running from the Tasman Sea to Deep Water Basin Harbour. It was the location for epic scenic shots in The Hobbit Trilogy; carved by glaciers, it really is deserving of every superlative you can think of. Returning to Te Anau, watch as the rugged beauty of Fiordland National Park unfolds before your eyes.
