Description

Embark on a flight and cruise to witness New Zealand's South Island beauty in all its grandeur, with Glenorchy Air. Fly over spectacular fjords and lakes, your eyes tracing the outlines of ancient glaciers and ice fields on your way to join a catamaran for a cruise down Milford Sound.

Departing from Queenstown Airport, a charter flight takes you over Lake Wakatipu and Glenorchy before heading to the wild and majestic Olivine Ice Plateau. As you soar from above, admire the tundra of the mountainous Whitbourne, Dart and Andy Glaciers.

Enjoy uninterrupted views of Mount Aspiring and Coronet Peak before touching down beside Milford Sound, where your pilot takes you to the boat terminal for 1 hour 45 minutes of cruising.

Listen to the silence of this vast region of water lined with snow-capped mountains. The silence is broken only by waterfalls splashing down sheer rock faces and the sounds of local birds. You may even spot dolphins playing in the catamaran’s wake and seals basking on the rocks.

Sail the length of the fjord to the mouth at the Tasman Sea before returning to dock and boarding your flight home taking a different route to enjoy more of the Southern Alps spectacular landscape.

Very friendly crew at Glenorchy Air .From the moment Dave picked us up in the bus and drove us to Queenstown Airport ,and Will our pilot got us airborne ,it was a fantastic experience !!Once at Milford Sound the bus was there to take us to the cruise vessel,less than 5 minutes drive away .We were fortunate enough to see a large pod of bottle nosed Dolphins and some Seals lazing on a rock !After the cruise it was back on the plane over more spectacular mountain scenery and arriving in Queenstown in just over 35 minutes !!!!Spend the money and fly !!!4hours round trip ,as opposed to 12- 13 hours by car or bus !!Highly recommended !!
