Your aerial adventure begins with pick-up from your central Queenstown hotel and a short transfer to the airport in time for an 8am, 10am, 12pm, or 2pm departure (depending on tour option selected). After meeting your pilot and receiving a safety briefing, jump aboard your fixed wing aircraft and take off over the city.
Listen to your pilot’s on-board 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 a 35-minute flight, enjoy spectacular aerial views of Milford Sound as you come in to land at the edge of the fjord.
You’ll have around two hours of 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.
