Milford Explorer Charter

Charter a scenic helicopter flight for 6 and enjoy a scenic flight over Milford Sound and the surrounding mountain ranges.

As you lift from Queenstown, you will experience the magical views of the Wakatipu Basin stretching out over the famous Earnslaw Burn and Lake McKerrow. As you take in the grandeur of the Southern Alps on your way into Milford Sound, you will land amongst ancient ice flows of the glaciers - truly mesmerising. Seal colonies and glacial valleys await you as you sweep the length of the glacier/snow in your private helicopter. It doesn’t end there either as you will view Lake Quill, the source of Sutherland Falls and the stunning Mackinnon Pass as you fly through the world-famous Arthur Valley on your journey home.
