Fly Nature Cruise on Milford Sound (Shared)
Fiordland, Southland, New Zealand
New Zealand’s incredible breadth of landscapes and staggering beauty becomes clear as you take to the skies over Lake Wakatipu and the glacial lakes, before cruising across the wildlife rich waters of Milford Sound on this shared experience.
You’ll be driven to Queenstown Airport where your aircraft awaits for the flight to Milford Sound. Though a mere 35-minutes, the flight highlights the sheer magnitude of New Zealand’s scenery, with alpine meadows, the glimmering waters of Lake Wakatipu, snow-capped mountains, waterfalls and densely forested valleys.
Once at Milford Sound you’ll board the Milford Mariner or the Milford Wanderer to begin the leisurely cruise to the Tasman Sea. With a relaxed itinerary, the cruise allows two hours to experience the exceptional natural beauty and extensive wildlife of the Sound, with expert commentary from the guide as you pass waterfalls, seals, dolphins and penguins. With a picnic lunch and refreshments, this is an informative yet laidback way to discover the varied highlights of the region.
From Milford Airport your flight takes a different path back to Queenstown allowing you to enjoy even more of the spectacular surrounds.
