Return Details

Returns to original departure point
After pickup by coach from your hotel in Queenstown, board a modern Airbus squirrel helicopter and buckle into your seat for an exhilarating flight. Slip on a headset to hear the pilot’s commentary as you take off for Milford Sound.

Prepare to be mesmerized by the wondrous landscape of Fiordland National Park. On arrival at Milford Sound, the helicopter shuts down for a short guided nature walk, including views of postcard-perfect Mitre Peak.

Back on board, you’ll fly past sheer granite cliffs and lush waterfalls along the entire length of the fiord, landing on a beach at the Tasman Sea. The next portion of your 2.5-hour tour continues above snow-capped mountains and river valleys to blue-green ice falls. Come in for a landing on Mt Tutoko glacier, Fiordland’s highest peak, before returning to Queenstown and a courtesy shuttle to your hotel.

Please note: Glacier landings are subject to weather and flight paths, and landings may change at the pilot’s discretion.
