Join us for the ultimate day-trip to New Zealand's unforgettable Milford Sound.

Experience for yourself the grandeur and stunning beauty of a place where mountains plunge steeply into a deep fiord teeming with rare wildlife.

You'll soon see why Milford Sound is one of the world's greatest destinations as you take in the scale of this natural wonder from both the air and sea.

The flight from Queenstown over the Southern Alps opens up endless panoramic views of a landscape forged by the greatest forces of nature, left unchanged by man.

Take it all in; rugged ridge-lines, snow-capped peaks, waterfalls cascading to lush valley floors covered with ancient forests, and divided by crystal clear streams.

On arrival in Milford Sound you will set off onboard a comfortable cruise vessel to begin an up-close exploration of the fiord from sea level.

Jagged cliffs, and hanging rainforest rises sharply up to snowy peaks hundreds of meters above you.

Take in the many spectacular waterfalls, and observe the interesting wildlife including Dolphins, Seals, and Penguins.

Most amazing scenic tour ever

This was possibly the best scenic tour I’ve ever taken. The views of our flight over the mountain range was simply stunning. Breathtaking sights of glaciers, snow capped peaks, frozen untouched lakes, and deep green forests with snaking rivers was once in a lifetime. Our pilot “Top-Gun” Jason was awesome. He was friendly and well-versed in his knowledge of the sights. He gave us some insightful facts and took a great route for us to see everything. Jason was a top-notch pilot and guide. Once we got to Milford Sound - after flying over the gorgeous valleys and inlet - Jason took us for a walk to the port, giving us some interesting facts and answering many questions. He even showed us some local “peppers” which we munched on for some warmth. The subsequent cruise was lovely. We saw several waterfalls, even at one point bathing under freezing cold glacial waters - and some local wildlife including s penguin and some seals lazing on the rocks. The flight back was just as amazing as there, and Jason took us on a different route for a new perspective. All in all this tour was 110% worth the money. Highly recommend!

A Life Changing Experience

We has the most fantastic day imaginable. The staff at True South Flights were were friendly, efficient and thoughtful. Our pilot, Jason was very friendly, professional and provided added value with his insights and tips. The flight over the mountains allowed us to experience a side of the country that can't be seen otherwise,with scenery so breath takingly beautiful that the experience even feels a bit surreal. You will have to pinch yourself to be reminded that you aren't dreaming. I can whole heartedly recommend it without any reservation.
