Why book a scenic flight after walking the Milford Track?

Our friends at Fiordland Outdoors have recently written about the reasons why you should book a scenic flight with us after finishing the Milford Track. Here are some highlights below. Click here to read the full blog. 

Flightpath and highlights.

After tackling the Milford Track on foot the Glenorchy Air fleet will meet you at the airport, store your bags and fly you fly high above the national park and the immense wilderness area you have walked through.

 

Take off past Mitre Peak and follow the typical flight path (weather depending), including highlights such as a flight over the Arthur Valley and down to the awe-inspiring Sutherland Falls. From there, you will pass Lake Iceberg, Lake Erskine (has to be seen to be believed) and have clear views of Mt Tutoko and Lake Te Anau. As your cross over the Earl mountains and the Eglinton Valley, sit back and relax as Lake Whakatipu comes into view and your final destination is within reach. Snap some incredible shots from a bird’s eye view to complete one of the most epic adventures in your lifetime. Does that sound like the perfect way to end your iconic Milford Track hike?

Why take a scenic flight?

  • Skip the 5-hour bus ride from Milford Sound to Queenstown
  • Includes drop-off to your Queenstown accommodation
  • Arrive back in Queenstown by 4 pm with plenty of time to relax
  • Milford Sound Airport is just a short walk from the boat drop-off point
