“Spectacular - would highly recommend! ”

Milford Sound Fly - Cruise - Fly
Reviewed 11 April 2017 via mobile

I was travelling with my Mam, brother and sister, and this day trip was the highlight of our holiday.
We drove to Queenstown airport and were able to book our fly - cruise trip to Milford Sound for 2pm that same day.
The flight was very smooth considering it was a 9 seat plane, and the views were spectacular.
The cruise along Milford Sound was for 2 hours and was extremely relaxing and enjoyable.
Would definitely recommend this trip to anybody going on holiday to NZ.

Day started with hotel pick up and ride to Queenstown airport. We then flew to new Milford in a Light twin. Ride was about 40 minutes. Great scenery over the mountains. We then boarded a ship for a 90 minutes cruise in Milford sound. Again great scenery on a wonderful ship. We were then taken back to the airport for the flight back to Queenstown. Cab back to our hotel completed the day. A great day and "must do" when you visit Queenstown!

What a truly breathtaking experience. Well worth the $$. Fly - cruise - fly offers the most amazing views of Milford Sound, Fiordland and the surrounding areas from Queenstown, to Wanaka and beyond. What an amazing day and the weather was insanely good!

We traveled through Milford Sound Scenic Flights.
We were collected at the hotel by a cab in the morning as part of the trip. Grant took us in the small plane to Milford. It was awe inspiring, the snow covered peaks are as far as the eye can see and in the clean New Zealand air that is a long way. Grant's Kiwi wit was just what was needed to keep us calm during the few small bumps as we passed the mountain ridges into the Tasman sea before turning and flying up the sound to Milford.
There we transferred to the boat for a leisurely trip around the sound. It is almost impossible to get a perspective of the size of the mountains as you cruise under the waterfalls, and observe the fur seals on the rocks.
From the boat we transferred to the helicopter and flew to Glenorchy. This was a real highlight the flight was amazing going up and over snow covered ridges and then landing on the snow, before landing in Glenorchy.
We were picked up at the air strip and taken to the Dart river jet boat head quarters. The jet boat ride was great fun and the interaction with the driver was great, stopping to allow some great pictures on the river or turning an 360 with the boat.
The next part of the trip was a walk in the forest with Blair, who explained the forest regeneration plan, how the area had been used for movies including Lord of the rings and the Hobbit. Blair was a great host who backed us up the extra half mile to give us the best experience of the lake and mountains possible.
The fly, cruise, heli, jet boat trip was an experience of a lifetime.

Flew from Queenstown up to Milford Sound in a little 9 seater plane with the experience breathtaking and the views unbelievable. Arrived Milford and then sailed to the end of the Sound with fantastic scenery and wildlife along the way. Returned to Queenstown with the same plane but a different route with more spectacular views especially of the Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables. Would highly recommend flying to Milford as an alternative to driving, more expensive but well worth the additional cost
