Milford Sound is one of New Zealand’s most impressive natural wonders, but the fjord’s remote location is around four hours by road from Queenstown. Instead, maximize your time on this tour by plane; enjoy spectacular aerial views of Skippers Canyon, Sutherland Falls, and the Fiordland National Park; and touch down to experience the fjord up close.

Listen to your pilot’s onboard commentary as you soar over the Paradise region, made famous in films such as 'Lord of the Rings' and 'The Hobbit,' then fly above the vast Skippers Canyon and the glittering Donne glacier. After your flight, enjoy spectacular aerial views of Milford Sound as you come onto land at the edge of the fjord.
You’ll have free time on the ground to admire views of Milford Sound, take photos, or enjoy coffee and cake (own expense) at the Discover Milford Café, before heading back to the airfield.
On the return flight, enjoy an alternative route, passing over the Fiordland National Park and taking in dramatic views of the 1,904-foot (580-meter) high Sutherland Falls.
Back in Queenstown, a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
