Hi , we are looking to take the extended trip landing on the beach and then the glacia , is early February a good time to do it ? . Thanks in advance
Thank you for your question!
Yes, February is a great time of year to join us on a Milford Extended Flight!
To be honest, any time of the year is great, it really depends on what is happening with the weather on the day. Obviously, we can't predict the weather, so we do recommend you make your flight booking in advance and at the beginning of your Queenstown itinerary. If we cannot fly due to adverse weather, we can transfer your booking to another available day or if you would prefer, we will refund you in full if your flight is cancelled due to weather.
The Milford Extended is an amazing flight - it is one of our most recommended Milford Flights & is likely to be the highlight of your time in New Zealand.
This flight is away for two and a half hours & includes three landings: Milford Sound, West Coast beach and Mt Tutoko Glacier. We also fly through Milford Sound (high above the cruise boats).
I hope this helps - if you have any further questions just let us know!
