Activity description

Experience a stunning scenic flight over Milford Sound, situated on the West Coast of the South Island, NZ. It is a world renowned area of extraordinary beauty!

Milford Sound is actually named incorrectly a sound, it actually is a true fiord, which measures 12 km long and is up to 320 metres deep.

The fiord receives an average yearly rainfall of approximately 7.5m (300 inches) because it is situated on one of the world’s most formidable coastlines, which is subject to rapidly changing weather conditions. The weather is famous for its ability to deteriorate or improve within a very short period of time.

These dramatic weather patterns result in some of nature's most amazing scenery transformations.

Some things can only be only experienced through a Milford Sound flight. Mitre Peak is an iconic New Zealand peak. Flying over it is a wonderful way to appreciate its grandeur and from the air, you will actually see that it is actually a closely grouped set of five peaks.

The Milford Sound Overhead Flight consists of fantastic aerial views of the Southern Alps, glaciers, waterfalls and the majestic Milford Sound. You can also choose to land 2 hours in Milford to explore, take pictures from the shore or have a delicious coffee and cake at the Discover Milford Café.
