Magic Experience

As a 78 year old NZer I have visited Milford several times but never by air and never on a calm brilliantly sunny day and never with so few other visitors. Highly recommended

Nervous flyer

I am a nervous flyer but enjoyed it. The pilot was very informative and finished it off with a cruise around Mildfoed Sound. It was a very good deal and I probably would never have got to Milford Sound if I had to drive

Hi Tonya Thank you for taking the time to review your Milford Sound Glacier Flight & Cruise from Wanaka with us. We were so happy to wake up to a beautiful day both here and at Milford Sound so that we had the opportunity to show off this spectacular region to you at it's very best. The pilots enjoy sharing their stories of the region as you travel across the Southern Alps, through 2 National Parks and amongst pristine glacier country. We are delighted that you chose to fly with us and hope you had the chance to get lots of great images to look back on. We hope that you had a great time and are discovering lots of other amazing places around NZ. Safe Travels from the Southern Alps Air Team.
