What To Expect

Your tour begins with pick-up from your Queenstown hotel and a short transfer to the hangar to board your flight. Take off for the flight to Milford Sound and admire spectacular views over the Fiordland National Park, as you swoop over the snow-capped peaks, glittering lakes, and dramatic fjords.

After touching down in Milford Sound, enjoy the fjord from a different perspective as you set sail on a cruise. Keep your camera close to hand as you cruise past natural wonders like the 525-foot (160-meter) high Bowen Falls, the striking hanging valley of Sinbad Gully, and the snow-capped peak of Mount Pembroke.

Climb onto your boat’s viewing platform to get a better view of the local wildlife, including colonies of fur seals, pods of dusky dolphins, and the rare Fiordland crested penguins. As you continue towards the Tasman Sea coast, pass beneath the distinctive 5,551-foot (1,692 meters) mountain of Mitre Peak, one of New Zealand’s most photographed landmarks.

Back on dry land, your driver is waiting to transfer you to the Milford Sound Airstrip, where you board a second flight to Glenorchy. Here, jump aboard a jet boat for a thrilling cruise along the Dart River, into the heart of the Mt. Aspiring National Park, a filming location for the 'Lord of the Rings' movies. You also have a chance for a closer encounter with the park’s diverse wildlife and discover the region’s rich Maori heritage on a guided walk through the forest.

After an action-packed day, you are transferred by coach back to Queenstown where your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.

Such a wonderful day our. Milford Sound is just breathtaking and seeing to by air and sea is the only way to do it. The jet boating was brilliant fun, such a great experience. Tip: book Milford sound for your first day so if it doesnt go ahead for weather reaaons, you can reschedule for an alternative day while you are there

Amazing!

This was definitely the highlight of our NZ trip! The flight over the sound and the cruise were both just awesome. What lovely views and the whole system worked smoothly with an efficient and friendly staff. I suggest you allow an extra day in the area in case the weather doesnt work. In our case, our flight was cancelled but we were able to reschedule for our second day in Queenstown. We were not able to reschedule the jet boat so we missed that. Highly recommend this tour.

So disappointed
Charles P

I was so excited for this trip. Monday morning in Queenstown was sunny and clear. Nevertheless when we called at 6:45 am as directed, a recorded voice told me that I trip had been cancelled due to bad weather at the Sound. Speaking to someone later about alternative plans, I was told that the next day:trip likely would also be cancelled. No probability figure is in your ads. I am so sorry we missed this trip and seeing the fjords. If I had know that there was a high probability of our trip being cancelled, I would have made totally different plans. I couldn’t change our agenda on a days notice, Janet

Very Disappointing

The tour was cancelled due to windy weather which we totally understand the problem was the way they kept delaying making a decision asking us to call them back four times in a row with increments between 15 and 5 minutes apart how would that period of time made any difference to the outcome? The tour was on the 10 January $1363 today is the 14th we still have not been contacted in relation to our refund so I contacted them the response being Viator have not heard from the tour operator so they will contact them and then get back to us taking anywhere between 7 to 10 working days. What a joke get your act together and return my money.

This tour covered many attractions that it would normally take a few days to see and was really well organized. The scenery was beautiful on the flights, cruise, and jet boat excursions. Staff was really friendly and good as well.

Most incredible day ever...(and we've had lots of incredible days)
, Jul 2018
Incredible day. Smoothly orchestrated, lovely people running each activity from Nely on the phone to Nadia in the air to Mark on the boat and Ian in the forest. Professional, fun, kind and accommodating to the last when we needed a lift to our car back at the airport. Worth every cent. Amazing, unforgettable experience!

Unfortunately, the 8 am flight was cancelled due to weather which eliminated the 2nd part of the tour including the jet boat ride etc. Having said that the flight in and out of the sound was amazing despite cloudy weather and the boat tour was beautiful.

The Milford Sound flight and cruise...
Rimas R
, Mar 2018
The Milford Sound flight and cruise are just amazing, bucket-list items. By far the highlight of our time in NZ. After that, there is quite a bit of time between when you get dropped off in Glenorchy and when the jet boat tour starts, so you can explore the little town and get a bite to eat at one of the handful of cafes. The 30-minute guided hike through the forest is not all that interesting, but the jet boat ride is terrific fun and it takes you through some really beautiful country.
