Your expert local pilot will provide interesting and informative commentary on the 1 hour 10 minutes flight. Depart from Queenstown Airport and head north over the Coronet Peak skifield, historic Skippers Canyon and the Shotover River - the second-richest gold-bearing river in the world. Enjoy panoramic views of Lake Wakatipu and glacier-fed braided rivers as you fly along the Dart River Valley into the World Heritage Area of Mt. Aspiring National Park. Continue your breathtaking journey into the Fiordland National Park, over the rugged West Coast and the Tasman Sea before a quick U-turn descending into Milford Sound itself.
