Milford Sound Fly Cruise Heli Queenstown
Milford Sound Fly Cruise Heli
Hovering over Milford Sound in a helicopter will enable you to view the awe-inspiring scenery from a different perspective. Land on a glacier or in the mountains, weather permitting, for a unique and exciting experience. Board a vessel at Milford for a cruise that takes you down the entire length of the fiord, and then fly back to Queenstown on a fixed wing plane that takes you over the stunning Fiordland National Park. This trip is one of the most well-rounded scenic trips available and may also run in the opposite manner, starting with a plane flight, followed by a cruise and ending with a helicopter ride.
One of the most breathtaking locations on earth, Milford Sound is a beautiful fiord of incredible grandeur and beauty, carved by glaciers over thousands of centuries. The freezing cold waters run into the Tasman Sea surrounded by the soaring mountain peaks of the inimitable Fiordland National Park.
Any visitor to New Zealand is advised not to miss the wonderful Milford Sound. Other than taking a scenic flight into Milford and back, a cruise will enable you to explore the fiord as well as its stunning surrounds.

Alex was great to deal with. Very helpful online and staff were great on the day. 25th Wedding anniversary day trip from CHCH. Tight timeline, ran like a dream, fantastic experience. Helicopter landing on the glacier took the prize. Milford was glorious. Well done.
Service rating: excellent
Kyran, our helicopter pilot was great, friendly and informative.
The only thing we were not aware of, were the sand flies which were in their masses, when we landed at Milford Sound. Luckily our fellow passengers shared their spray with us.
The helicopter ride was the highlight of our trip and the cruise was good too.
Product rating: excellent
Well worth the money to do the helicopter trip both ways and the cruise.
