Join Glenorchy Air and experience the unique wonders of Milford Sound with an awe-inspiring Fly-Cruise-Coach adventure.
Taking off from Queenstown Airport the vast expanse of lake Wakatipu opens up underneath you as your scenic flight takes you over Queenstown towards Glenorchy at the head of the lake.
Passing over the rugged rocky mountains of Fiordland National park you take in stunning views of waterfalls, ancient rainforest, hanging glaciers and untouched valleys glistening with the crystal clear alpine rivers.
Descending into the striking scenery of Milford Sound you will be captivated by the grandeur of the infamous Mitre Peak rising a mile high from the waters of the fiord vertically into the sky. Take in the majestic beauty of the many waterfalls and sheer mountains that rise abruptly from the ocean.
Landing in Milford Sound it is time to experience the fiord from a different aspect aboard a Southern Discoveries scenic cruise. Taking in the full length of the fiord out to the open sea and back again this hour and three quarters scenic cruise allows you to take in a very different perspective while observing the rare wildlife that inhabit the fiord. Seals, sea lions, dolphins, penguins and many species of native bird call Milford Sound home so make sure your camera is at the ready.
The coach ride back to Queenstown takes you on one of New Zealand's most stunning scenic drives along the Milford Highway via Te Anau to Queenstown.
Please note the driver does not give a commentary on this return trip. The coach company we use does not pre-allocate seats, which means we cannot guarantee people sitting next to each other on the ride back to Queenstown.

Thank you Joseph for taking the time to review us. It sounds like you enjoyed the majority of your experience and we apologise that the cruise portion of your trip didn't live up to expectation. Milford Sound is an extremely popular area so can get quite busy but customers always comment on how they enjoyed the flight to and from the fiord. We do hope that you enjoyed the rest of your time in NZ and thank you for flying with Glenorchy Air. Kind regards, The Glenorchy Air Team
