Helicopter Flight - Milford & Alps
Helicopter Flight - Milford & Alps
The sublime beauty of Queenstown’s alpine landscapes, set against the dramatic Remarkables mountain range and the tranquil Lake Wakatipu, are all the more alluring when seen from the air. The Helicopter Line operates scenic helicopter flights from the Queenstown Airport, situated a convenient 8 kilometres from the heart of the city.
Milford Sounds & Alps
Fly from the quaint city of Queenstown to the spectacular Milford Sound, passing serene alpine lakes, dense rainforest and dramatic mountain peaks along the way. Marvel at jaw dropping views of the iconic Milford Sound and the impressive Mitre Peak that seems to rush out of the dramatic fiords. Enjoy three awe-inspiring landings in the heart of the mountains or on a glacier if the weather allows.

Service rating: bad
Had confirmation email through outlining inclusions for the day stating pick up from Palm Cove 6am; got call 10hrs before saying 'can't do, you will have to be picked up in the main street in Cairns at 6.30am.' Bus did not come until 7.30am. Got to destination and there was no coffee and muffin, no welcome drink and no BBQ lunch,which was also confirmed in the email. Lunch for the day was a hamburger only!! Very disappointing day
And of course..... no jumps today
