Milford Sound Flights from Franz Josef

This flightseeing tour is ideal if you have limited time as driving to Milford Sound from Franz Josef takes 9½ hours. Our Milford Sound flights operate on demand from Franz Josef with time on the ground for photos and perhaps a boat cruise.



This is a great way to see the beautiful Milford Sound without needing to drive into this very remote area. The flight can be done as a direct flight to Milford Sound via Mount Aspiring National Park or can go via the Mount Cook area and include the main scenic portion of our ‘Grand Traverse’ flight - flying over New Zealand’s highest mountains and largest glaciers. Flights generally stop over in Milford for 30 minutes, enough time to get some stunning views of the fiord and towering mountains from ground level: A boat cruise can also be arranged if time & weather permit. Every passenger has a window seat and wings-above ensure optimum viewing below. Pilots provide a full and informative commentary.
