    What to Expect
    Confirm your flight's departure (which depends on the day's weather) by calling ahead before your flight. Once confirmed, make your own way to the Milford Sound Airport to board your small airplane.

    Take the scenic route to Queenstown when you glide over the majestic landscape of Fiordland National Park. Capture aerial photos of snow-capped mountains, sparkling fjords, and alpine lakes, and see features such as the Tasman Sea, Southern Alps, Lake Wakatipu, and Sutherland Falls.

    Touch down at Queenstown Airport and disembark from your aircraft. Transfer to the waiting vehicle for transportation to your hotel in Queenstown where your tour ends.
