The MIlford Sound/Waterfall heli tour was fabulous. Mark cannot be praised enough for his impeccable organisation. We found him to be highly professional from first contact to post trip and would absolutely use his services again. A truly mind blowing trip and one that has ruined us forever. Thank you

This tour is one of the most impressive things we have done in our lives. If I was going to do only one thing in NZ, this would be it. You get to enjoy the majestic beauty of the place and it's diversity in one afternoon. In summary, this is why I would book with Alpine Adventures: 1. Earnslaw Burn... More
