What you can expect

Visit the famous Milford Sound on a scenic helicopter flight from Glenorchy flying across the majestic landscape of the Southern Alps. The region is often referred to as the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World’ and once passengers are up in the air, they’ll understand why. Fly over magnificent fiords carved by ancient glaciers to spot cascading waterfalls, unique wildlife and sheer cliffs clad with native beech forest.

The spectacular glaciers and hidden lakes begin to reveal themselves as you cruise closer to Milford Sound and Mitre Peak. Before you return to Glenorchy, stop for a brief photo opportunity on the Upper Humboldt Mountain Range for panoramic views of Glenorchy and beyond. Flights depart at 10.30am and 3.30pm. Be quick, reserve your spot online for this popular Milford Sound helicopter tour.
