Overview
See Milford Sound’s soaring cliffs and waterfalls on a spectacular trip that explores Fiordland National Park by air and water. Combining a sightseeing flight and cruise—with included transportation from your hotel—is a great way to take in the vast scale of the region's alpine lakes, fjords, and glaciers. After touching down in Milford Sound, cruise the entire length in a boat for spotting wildlife and snapping photos.
