It’s a well known fact that a flight to Milford Sound should be taken from Wanaka. Your flight path follows the stunning Southern Alps, the backbone of the South Island. On this tour you will enjoy a diverse range of scenery from remote alpine lakes, to snow capped peaks and deep glacial carved valleys.

Fly over the remote Fiordland mountain, visit Milford Sound and enjoy a short nature walk. Don’t miss your photo opportunity, with Mitre Peak in the background! After this, fly alongside the mountain peaks and land on a pristine glacier. Your second landing is a bonus 10min snow/glacier landing on the border of Mt Aspiring National Park.

If Milford Sound and seeing the glaciers are on your bucket list this is the flight for you. This is absolutely a ‘must-do’ on any visit to New Zealand.
