We were picked up and dropped off at the holiday park. We went on a flight from Queenstown to Milford Sound. There we made a cruise through Milford Sound and flew back again to Queenstown. A great experience! We went with another couple on a small plane, friendly and skilled pilot. Great views of the mountains (southern alpes) and the Sound. The pilot came with us to the start of the cruise and picked us up again.

I took a scenic flight from Milford Sound to Queenstown with Glenorchy Air, and it's probably one of my favorite, most memorable experiences from New Zealand. We had absolutely perfect weather in October, and the mountains and lakes of the Southern Alps could not have been any more breathtaking. Even my photos are flawless. We were well taken care of, and even offered a great price, which was a big plus! Though the experience - excuse the cliche - was priceless.
My friend and I took a flight into Milford Sound with Glenorchy in late October. They can't take the credit for the fabulous weather on the day of the flight but they made the most of it with a superb flight over the mountains. They looked after us magnificently from start to finish - a personal service that made us feel like real VIPs with our own private plane. OK it costs a bit more than the coach but 5 hours in and 5 hours back on the road can't be much fun, whereas with Glenorchy it was sheer pleasure. Ian Lee
If you want to have a trip of a lifetime, fly with Glenorchy Air to Milford Sound. They include a Glacier flight with each Milford trip and give you a fabulous dvd to take home. You can relive the trip again and again. What awesome views.
