What to expect
Your Milford Sound helicopter flight provides access to some of New Zealand’s most secluded natural wonders. An expert pilot takes you sightseeing into the heart of the UNESCO-listed Fiordland with unrivaled aerial views of the lush rainforest, bush-lined valleys and crevasse-filled glaciers between Queenstown and Milford Sound. Start your helicopter tour with hotel pickup before taking to the skies on a 1.5-hour scenic ride. En route, listen to the pilot’s informative commentary about the stunning landscape below. Upon reaching your destination, you’ll hover above iconic Mitre Peak before landing at Milford Sound. When it’s time again for take-off, marvel at up-close views of the famous fiord’s towering peaks and sparkling waterways. Then fly over the crevasse-filled Tukuko Glacier, landing here or in Otago's Glacier Basin, before your return flight to Queenstown where you’re transferred to your hotel. Please note: All landings are weather-dependent and according to the pilot's discretion.

Wonderful Milford Sound Experience
When I got to the South Island, the road to Milford Sound had just been closed due to a meter rainstorm a few days prior. I was very bummed that I was not going to get to see it until I asked my Gadventures guide if there were any helicopter tours to Milford. He mentioned Heli Line and told me to do some research. At first, I was daunted by the price tag, but after talking to some friends, I was convinced to splurge on the trip. From start to finish the experience was great. I got picked up in the morning and was driven to the airport, I got a window seat in a helicopter seating the pilot and five others, and got spectacular views (different each way) to and from Milford Sound. My pilot was really nice and we got to do a glacier landing as part of the trip which was a very cool experience. I always felt safe, and this was two weeks after the passing of Kobe. Though the trip was over $1000 NZ, it was well worth every cent, especially given my inability to get there otherwise. The Heli Line gave me a very unique opportunity to see Milford Sound and I would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone who has the cash to spare.

This is a beautiful tour of Queenstown area and Milford Sound with landings on the beach and in a mountain setting next to an alpine lake (with fun viewings of Kea parrots). Great views of glaciers, mountains, lakes, coastline and surrounding area of Queenstown. Due to weather, our trip was postponed a few days, so we did the shorter Grand Circle tour also. This was also nice, but if weather allows, the Milford tour is a must!

Wow. Never felt so safe in the air, best way to get to and from milford sound and a stop over on top of Mt Lindsay for a play in the snow and breathe in the freshest air youve gotta do it.

Absolutely the best!
We absolutely loved it. We were frankly over dressed not knowing what to expect of the weather. It was not cold. BEN and Gerard were so kind and friendly and toom great care. We were a party of 10 and sorry to the 2 others who had to pace with us along with our elderly parents. The stopover on top of a glacier was a blast and we all wished we could hang out there longer. What an amazing experience. It was so professional, not rushed or too crowded. We enjoyed the little walk back after the cruise as we had just missed our bus but that was even better with a nice stroll back along the water.
We enjoyed every minute of the day out with great hosts. Thank you.

Awesome Helicopter flight and Milford Sound Cruise
We did the helicopter flight and Milford Sound Cruise with our boys ages 14 and 10. Our pilot Ben was fantastic. He made us feel very relaxed and was brilliant with our boys. He was both knowledgeable of the area and threw in some good jokes as well. The snow/glacier landing was the absolute highlight! My boys touched snow for the first time and even had a snowball fight in December. The Milford Cruise was amazing but I must admit the helicopter component was the best bit! Thanks Ben for an amazing afternoon!
