To fully appreciate the glory of Milford Sound, do not miss out on your chance to hop aboard a fixed wing plane or helicopter to see the spectacular scenery from a bird's eye view. This area of New Zealand is truly stunning and not to be missed – soar above Mitre Peak and the deep fiords on a 90 minute helicopter flight to Milford Sound from Queenstown, or cruise the skies on a two-hour scenic plane trip. If you would prefer, combine a breathtaking Mlford flight from Queenstown, followed by a two-hour cruise on magnificent Milford Sound, flanked by rocky glacial peaks, and Fiordland National Park. With a large number of plane and helicopter flights available – some with cruises and options for landing on glaciers and mountaintops – there is a thrilling Milford Sound adventure to suit every budget and aspiration. Queenstown to Milford Sound flights operate daily all year but they are weather dependent, so be sure to book for one of your first days in Queenstown so you can reschedule (or get a full refund) if your flight day does not go ahead.

Do Milford flights from Queenstown operate in all weather conditions?
No, if its really windy or cloudy then the flights will not go ahead. This is because the pilots need good visibility to be able to fly and land in these spectacular alpine conditions. This means that if your flight to Milford is going ahead then you can be assured of stunning views out your window. You will find out on the morning of your flight if it is going ahead or not. 

What happens if my Milford flight is cancelled?
If your flight to Milford from Queenstown is cancelled then you will be given the option of rescheduling to another date, or you will be eligible for a full refund.

Should I book my flight to Milford in advance?
Yes, we absolutely recommend booking your Milford flight in advance as there are limited spaces available and during the peak seasons the flights are often booked up several days in advance. If you aren't sure what date to book then book for your first day in Queenstown so that if the weather is no good for flying you can always reschedule to another day.

What's the most popular Milford Sound flight from Queenstown?
By far the most popular tour is the Milford Flight and Cruise, also known as the Milford fly cruise fly. This is a 4 hour round trip that includes a 50 minute flight to Milford and then back to Queenstown, with a 2 hour boat cruise of Milford Sound.
