We flew return Queenstown to Milford Sound. I had been tossing up for weeks whether to spend the extra money and fly or do a day trip by bus or car. So, so happy we flew with Glenorchy Air! What an amazing experience. The scenery is absolutely spectacular. Our pilot Will was informative and lots of fun. Excellent service, pick up and return from the hotel, all tickets and transport to the cruise included and even the picnic lunch we ordered was great. A memorable experience, highly recommended.

We had an awesome time doing the fly-cruise-fly with our kids to Milford Sound. The pilots, staff, and service were great and they did everything possible to make it a great experience for us. The flight was absolutely epic, and a must do if you're in Queenstown...highly recommended over driving, and probably the most beautiful flying I've ever done. Beautiful day for a cruise, we saw waterfalls, dolphins, and seals. Can't say enough good things about the trip with Glenorchy Air.

This was the highlight of our week in Queenstown. We flew to Milford on a beautiful day through stunning scenery, with charming and informative commentary from our pilot. At Milford our cruise was on a comfortable boat and we were lucky to see the dolphins surfing along, directly below where we were standing at the bow. The skipper also nosed the boat right up to a waterfall where we could feel the glacial spray in our faces. Was our second flight to Milford, but first time for our kids aged 8, 12 and 14. We all loved it!

It’s always a good time to fly! If the option is there, we would suggest either our 9.00am or 1.45pm departures. Please note, our 1.45pm departure time is only available at certain times of the year. Whilst we cannot guarantee it, Milford Sound can sometimes be a little bit quieter at these times.
We suggest you bring the following with you to make it a great day out:

Our pilots will always look at the forecast for the full duration of your trip and if we feel like the weather may change, we will not leave Queenstown. Due to the weather-dependent nature of flying in the Southern Alps to Milford Sound, it is unfortunate that there are very rare occasions where the forecast changes on us and although uncommon, it can be a case that we are unable to operate the return flight. The safety of our passengers is always our highest priority and in the unlikely event that this ever occurs, we will arrange coach transfers back to Queenstown. We fully appreciate the inconvenience this will cause and do everything we can to look after our passengers.
