Milford Sound Overflight
If you’re pushed for time and can’t take in the cruise, this trip provides a spectacular overview of Milford Sound and endless panoramic views of lakes, forested river valleys, waterfalls, jagged razor backed ridge lines and snow covered peaks along the way. This Milford Sound flight is an unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience.
Crossing the mountains at altitude from the Mount Aspiring National Park into the Fiordland National Park, you’ll soar above snow-capped mountains, glaciers and glacial rivers before descending into Milford Sound. Here, you’ll have close up views of Mitre Peak, glaciers and the Stirling and Lady Bowen Falls. Once you’ve taken in the panoramic views of the Sound, we’ll fly you back to Queenstown via one of New Zealand’s tallest waterfalls—the Sutherland Falls—and over more mountains to look down on the valleys and the road that makes it way from Te Anau via the Homer Tunnel to Milford Sound. Due to weather conditions that are common in this area we sometimes need to detour from our desired flight path, but we will always ensure you are safe, comfortable and get to experience fantastic views on our Milford Sound flights. All seats aboard our aircraft are window seats and our pilots love to provide an interesting and informative commentary.

Doubtful Sound Add-onFor the ultimate Fiordland experience, add one hour of flight time through the heart of Fiordland to your journey. You will fly from Queenstown to Doubtful Sound: the largest of the thirteen sounds in Fiordland, with massive waterfalls and countless alpine lakes. From there cross eight other sounds between Doubtful Sound and Milford Sound, through the heart of the one of the largest and most unique national parks in the world. This option is more weather dependent than Milford Sound alone, but the rewards when the weather is good are fantastic. To add this upgrade on, choose a date and time for the flight on the calendar, then tick the "Doubtful Sound Add-on" box on the reservations page.More Less
