Milford Sound and The Glaciers with Over The Top Helicopters

Often described as the land sculpted by divine hand, eyewitness the breathtaking geography of the Milford Sound first hand by helicopter

Highlights

  • Depart beautiful Queenstown and journey over glacier valleys
  • Soar over the Southern alps and view the changing landscapes
  • Fly through Milford Sound past sea cliffs and waterfalls that pour out from the valleys
  • On the way back, touch down on a remote alpine landing and jump out for an epic photo opportunity

Experience this incredible helicopter tour of Milford Sound and the Glaciers!

Your flight will depart from Queenstown Airport, first flying you over the stunning environments of the Otago high country and the Southern Alps.

Upon reaching Milford Sound, experience the scale and beauty of the souring sea cliffs and the many waterfalls that pour out from the valleys.

These dreamy waterfalls fall from the surrounding rainforest with some reaching a thousand metres in length. Throughout the year, Lady Bowen Falls (162m high) and Stirling Falls remain permanent despite rainfall levels.

On the return leg to Queenstown, your pilot will touch down in a remote alpine setting and shut down the helicopter for you to jump out and enjoy the quiet silence of this pristine environment.

You will capture breathtaking views and walk where few have gone before. This is a great trip to do if time is limited and you want to see as much as you can within a few hours!

Per person $1,125.00

Thanks for booking with us Katie and great to hear you enjoyed your flight through beautiful Fiordland!

Amazing views

We had an awesome experience. Our pilot (Dan) was well-informed about the area and had tons of details about the science of why the landscape looks the way it does - really interesting! The views were absolutely incredible, we weren't able to land on a glacier since we're coming off of summer, but we were very nearby. Still awesome to be in a place that would be completely inaccessible by any other way! Highly recommend.
