The flight from Queenstown to Milford Sound is an unforgettable insight into a natural realm at its unspoilt best. Home to some of the most dramatic scenery in the world, these remarkable views can only truly be appreciated from above.
As you cross over into the Fiordland National Park, you’ll discover an untouched world of peaks and valleys, where mountains reach into the sea – a landscape forged by the rapid retreat of glaciers.
Soaring above Milford Sound you’ll spot cascading waterfalls hidden amongst towering peaks, and the icy blue channel that flows into the Tasman Sea. From the luxuriant mosses and ferns clinging to sheer rock faces, to immense peaks rising straight from the ocean depths, the entire experience is truly awe-inspiring.
Fly across the mountain ranges and beech forests of the Southern Alps, above the famous Milford Track and over the Sutherland Falls before you reach the striking Lake Wakatipu and land at Queenstown Airport, rated one of the world’s most scenic landings.
