You're picked up at your hotel in Queenstown at your selected departure time, or you can opt to self-drive to the hangar. On arrival, you'll be checked in and provided with a window seat aboard the aircraft. Then settle in for a 40-minute scenic flight to Milford Sound.
The route takes you over the magnificent landscapes of Fiordland National Park, with majestic views of mountain lakes and waterfalls. Listen to your pilot's narration before landing and swapping your plane for a cruise boat to explore the Milford Sound. Spend 2 hours covering the length of the fiord, from Mitre Peak to the Tasman Sea. A picnic lunch is available for purchase before you board the boat.
Upon completion of the cruise you will be flown back to Queenstown on a different flight path along the Southern Alps. When you reach Queenstown you will be transferred back to your accommodation.
