Scenic Flights

See the area from a whole new perspective, with plenty of options linking to cruises in Milford Sound

Flight-seeing trips by helicopter and fixed wing aircraft to Milford Sound and Mount Cook depart from Glenorchy airport. Milford Sound is just 36 kilometres in a direct line from Glenorchy. The change in scenery over this area is phenomenal and, if the weather is fine, it is one of the most spectacular excursions you will ever take. No landing fees at Glenorchy Airstrip mean that flight-seeing trips to Milford Sound can be more economical from Glenorchy rather than Queenstown.

Heli Glenorchy

Within 15 minutes of take off you’ll be discovering breathtaking fiords, waterfalls, glaciers, soaring above the world-famous Milford Sound or touching down for a snow landing. Wherever you go you’ll be taking in some of New Zealand’s unparalleled remote beauty. Choose from a variety of trips or create or your own charter, the sky’s the limit!
