Mitre Peak beckons as your helicopter lifts off to begin your journey into Milford Sound. Discover isolated valleys of ancient forests and pristine rivers famous for their fishing as well as mountains sculptured from ice over thousands of years. Upon landing in Milford, enjoy a short nature walk and gain that iconic Mitre Peak photo. Fly the length of Milford Sound past sheer cliffs and gushing waterfalls, out to the Tasman Sea and the wild West Coast. Experience an exhilarating flight past spectacular mountains and blue-green ice falls, and land upon Mt Tutoko Glacier, an awe inspiring experience with ice formations and crevasses to astound.
Time for a gourmet lunch and wine in remote alpine wilderness before returning to Queenstown via Mt Aspiring National Park over the famous Moonlight and Shotover Canyons, rich in gold mining history.

We recommend that you select a date at the start of your stay in Queenstown so that if flights are delayed due to inclement weather we have time to rebook you on an alternative day. Departure time is indicative only and we will confirm this with you in our confirmation email.
