Milford Sound Coach-Cruise-Fly - True South Flights

Experience one of New Zealand's number one tourist destinations from three fantastic perspectives - a luxury scenic coach into Milford Sound, a small boat cruise and an awe-inspiring scenic flight!

Experience one of New Zealand's number one tourist destinations from three fantastic perspectives. First travel south by luxury coach along the shores of Lake Wakatipu, with the Remarkable Mountain range rising to 2,290m to your left and spectacular views across the lake to the Eyre Mountains out to your right. From then it's through rural New Zealand heartland as you head west towards Te Anau for a short stop.

From Te Anau it is north into the heart of the Fiordland National Park, with numerous stops on your way to Milford Sound allowing you to enjoy the grandeur of your surroundings.

On arrival at Milford Sound you will board a small cruise boat and journey the length of the fiord towards the Tasman Sea. This will give you the chance to experience the spectacular waterfalls and rare wildlife of Milford Sound.

After your cruise boat docks you will be escorted to your aeroplane, where every seat is a window seat for the return flight back to Queenstown. This breathtaking scenic flight lasts approximately 40 minutes, giving you the chance to see from the air the amazing sights you have just experienced from land and water. You will experience panoramic views of razor sharp ridgelines, snow capped peaks and deep glacial formed valleys. The flight takes you across the Southern Alps towards the head of Lake Wakatipu before following the lake to Queenstown. You will arrive in Queenstown late afternoon approximately four hours ahead of your fellow passengers returning by coach, giving you a little more time to experience all that Queenstown has to offer.

Trip includes:

  • Modern coach with on board cinema
  • Short nature walks and photo opportunities en-route
  • Picnic lunch
  • 1.5 hour Milford Sound cruise
  • Scenic flight from Milford Sound to Queentown*
  • Courtesy transport from Queenstown airport back to your accommodation

*Scenic flight portion is weather dependant, in the event of conditions being unsuitable for the flight back to Queenstown you will return by coach and be refunded the cost of the flight portion. In this case the total cost of your trip will be $177pp

Departure: Queenstown 7:00am

Please be at The Station Building bus stop corner of Camp & Shotover St for departure.

If you would prefer pick-up from your Queenstown central accommodation please indicate this on your booking form

THE BEST WAY TO GET THE MOST OUT OF MILFORD SOUND - COACHES GET INTO MILFORD IN MOST WEATHER, WHEREAS FLIGHTS ARE MUCH MORE WEATHER DEPENDANT. BOOKING THIS TRIP GETS YOU TO MILFORD SOUND FOR YOUR CRUISE AND THEN IF THE WEATHER IS SUITABLE TAKES YOU ON AN UNFORGETTABLE SCENIC FLIGHT RETURN TO QUEENSTOWN

(2) Flights Guaranteed confirmed with 2 passengers or more (3) Discount fares are transferable at True South Flights's discretion. Cancellations by the operator due to weather will be fully refunded.

Fly back from Milford Sound

Pilot met us at our tour bus and escorted to shuttle to airport. Flight was amazing - total new view of incredible scenery. Shuttle service back to our hotel was friendly and efficient. Memorable adventure.

Amazing experience, must do in NZ!

This was one of the most incredible experiences in NZ after spending two weeks in both the North and South Islands. Extremely well looked after by the team at True South Flights and Jucy as I did a last-minute booking (the night before) and it all worked out perfectly. The coach to Milford sound was great, we learnt a lot on the way there and stopped off at a lot of scenic points along the way. The cruise was beautiful; however, the highlight was the flight in a propeller plane back to Queenstown. Seeing Milford Sound from above is breathtaking, with views of the mountains covered in vegetation or snow. It was the best way to view the Milford Sound region out of the other two methods. Our pilot was extremely nice and pointed out areas of interest. It made for an extremely memorable experience and I highly recommend it!

An exciting trip

Weather was not too good with heavy drizzle all the way. Lunch was average. The fjords and the NZ sea lions we saw were great.The return by flight was cancelled because of poor visibility and we had to take the coach back.

Amazing Milford Sounds

The weather wasn't great the day started out overcast and we had a bit of rain, sleet and snow but not enough to dampen anyone's spirit. Our coach driver Pablo was fantastic, funny and informative through out the tour. My husband and I live in the north island and this was our first trip down south, I am of maori decent and want to say without a doubt this was one of the highlights of our holiday. We had planned to fly back to Queenstown from Milford but alas it was unsafe to do so and so after our amazing cruise out to the Tasman sea and back we returned by coach. A great day, spectacular views, friendly people and staff especially Pablo our premo safe driver...
