Awesome company to travel to Milford with from Wanaka. Scenically a much better option than Queenstown due to the close proximity to Mt Aspiring therefore providing stunning mountain views. A well established flight business with friendly highly experienced pilots. Fantastic commentary the entire flight. Very willing and helpful helping my friend who required some physical assistance also. Thank you for such a memorable and scenically stunning experience Southern Alps Air.

If ,like us, it's your first time in NZ, do yourself a favour and fly with Southern Alps Air to Milford Sound. We had a beautiful experience flying with them. Our pilot was friendly and knowledgeable from the get-go, giving good commentary all the way and even on the way back. Bring a pair a binos to complete the experience. Views are stunning and breathtaking. Everything from lift off to cruise to touch down back at base was perfect. 10/10.

We had done Siberia Experience on 22nd Jan and had an amazing time and customer service was excellent so we decided to do a scenic flight to Milford Sound the next day!
Again great customer service, friendly staff.
Beautiful Scenic flight from Wanaka to Milford, Pilot gave great commentary. Landed at Milford then Boat Cruise. We really enjoyed it and would recommend going with Southern Alps Air.

We did the flight/boat tour. Great flight. Pilot was great (he was the owner) - loads of fun and good humour. They have a Cessna 206 & 207. We were in the 206. Total of 5 passengers. Planes were in good shape. Milford Sound boat ride was OK, but really touristy - not our cup of tea. We would have enjoyed a smaller boat with less people but it was still loads of fun. Flight operation was great and intimate and we loved it.
