Itinerary
Meet a driver at your centrally located Queenstown accommodations for transfer to the airport, where you’ll start with a preflight briefing on the scenic highlights of the route, including Skippers Canyon, the Paradise region, and Donne Glacier.

Enjoy spectacular views of the rugged southern terrain and then fly over Milford Sound itself before landing at the head of the fjord. Board a cruise boat for a trip down the length of Milford Sound, with reserved seating, hot drinks, and open-air decks that give up-close views of the fjord’s dramatic waterfalls and wildlife.

Following the cruise, lift off for the 35-minute return flight to Queenstown, taking a different route to see even more of the landscape, including towering Sutherland Falls. A driver will greet you at the airport for return transfer to you accommodations.
