The ultimate Fiordland charter flight for an in-depth exploration of New Zealand's largest World Heritage area. 

Showcasing the vast natural beauty of this remote region, this flight will take you to many hidden corners of Fiordland, as well as the better-known landmarks of Milford Sound and Mitre Peak. 

Fly west from Queenstown over Lake Whakatipu, above famous Walter Peak Station and across the stunning waters of Lake Manapouri and Iris burn, home of the Kepler Track. Experience the vastness of Doubtful Sound landing high above the picturesque inlets for photo opportunities of this unforgettable view before flying out to the wild West Coast where the Tasman Sea meets land. 

A second landing at Lake Quill will allow you to explore one of Fiordland's most stunning hidden gems before your pilot whisks you away again past the impressive 1,900ft Sutherland Falls. Fly the 16km length of Milford Sound past sheer cliffs and gushing waterfalls before landing on a nearby glacier to fully appreciate the magnitude of its impressive ice falls and crevasses. 

Time for one last stop in a remote alpine location where you'll enjoy a gourmet picnic and wine before returning to Queenstown via Mt Aspiring National Park and Skippers Canyon.
