What To Expect

Select from three departure times at booking. Then board a modern 6-seater Airbus Squirrel after a hotel transfer to the helicopter base in Queenstown. 
Slip on your audio headset to hear the pilot's commentary as you take off for Milford Sound. Upon landing at the famous fiord, embark on a scenic cruise that takes you past Milford's sheer cliffs and gushing waterfalls. Search the waters for dolphins, seals, and penguins.
Then re-board the helicopter for an aerial tour, soaring above ice falls to touch down on Mt. Tutoko, a glacier in the heart of Fiordland National Park. (Glacier landings are subject to weather conditions and flight paths, which may change at the pilot’s discretion.)
On arrival back in Queenstown, a courtesy shuttle transfers you back to your hotel.

Very nice tour! We loved the helicopter flight-- it affords some amazing views along the way. The cruise was great, but be prepared for the weather if you want to enjoy the top deck. Our day was very windy but mild so a windbreaker and hat come in handy. Worth it though-- we saw penguins and seals along the shore.

This was truly awesome. The pilot Alfie was excellent and the cruise was amazing. This is an absolute must to any traveller to New Zealand's South Island

Helicopter view of the gorgeous landscape is a must. Fiord cruise gives a close contact with the magnificiency of the place. Highly priced due to the high demand, it is worth to do it.
