Highlights

  • Travel with the highest rated tour operator in Queenstown!
  • Take a gorgeous scenic flight to Milford Sound
  • Explore by water with a 2 hour Milford Sound Cruise
  • Convenient transfers from Queenstown

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.

Expect to see seals and occasionally dolphins and penguins as you pass close to magnificent waterfalls and sheer granite cliffs, while your skipper provides you with a detailed and entertaining commentary of the region and its history.

Fabulous, wish I'd done it sooner

5th time to Milford, and by far the best way to see it in a short timeframe. Big ups to Jason our pilot for taking extra time to point out tramping tracks I'd walked. I was expecting a flight from A to B but the route really showcased the scenery. Highly recommended, whether you're local or not!

Amazing experience

The whole day went without a hitch from arriving at the office, flight to Milford Sound and cruise then return flight back. An opportunity for some fantastic photographs/videos and an extremely knowledgeable pilot Andrew. He certainly knows a lot about this part of the world and we learnt quite a lot from him. I would highly recommend this trip, only a 40 minute flight each way and the whole trip is about 4 hours, far better than a 12 hour return coach trip. Well done to all at True South an experience we will never forget and highly recommended. A highly professional organisation.

Milford Sound fly cruise fly

The flight was excellent would highly recommend flying with Air Wakatipu. The pilot was very informative. Milford Sound itself was very disappointing maybe it was the time of year not sure

From Milford Sound - Fly-Cruise-Fly - True South Flights

Hi Pete It is great to hear you enjoyed the flight over to Milford Sound. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with Milford, we have had some unsettled weather to start of winter here but thankfully it has past now. I hope to show you Milford Sound again in the future on a great day! Kind Regards Cory - Air Wakatipu

Amazing Experience

Had a fantastic time flying with True South Flights to Milford Sound and the 2 hour cruise on the Sound. The office staff were friendly and helpful and the pilot also friendly and informative. Felt very comfortable on the flight and the Sound cruise was also great. Every staff member we came into contact with was cheerful, friendly and informative and made it an experience to remember. Would definitely recommend this company and trip to everyone.
