Milford & Doubtful Sounds

Book - Milford Sound: Fly - Cruise - Fly

This scenic flight connection between Queenstown and Milford Sound is the ultimate way to experience the drama and vastness of New Zealand's impressive alpine scenery. Soar high above Lake Wakatipu before trading crystal clear glacial water for towering snow-capped peaks.

The aircraft you fly in are specifically designed for flying over rugged, mountainous terrain and the pilots are specially trained and extremely informative.

After flying into Milford Sound join a 1 hour 40 minute scenic cruise or a 2 hour nature cruise from the comfort of a spacious and modern boat. View wildlife including seals, penguins and dolphins and get up close with nature as the boat noses right into the waterfalls and the fiord's sheer cliff faces.

  • Courtesy airport transfers to and from Queenstown
