Q & A
  • Exploring the stunning Milford Sound and Fiodland National Park by air is a popular activity. Many companies offer scenic helicopter tours from Queenstown. Tours vary in duration from 30 minutes to 3 hours. Shorter tours typical cover just a few areas of the Milford Sound whereas the longer tours combine Milford Sound and Fiordland National Park with West-coast Beaches, Southern Alps and include glacier landing as well.

    There are also shorter duration helicopter tours available from Milford Sound Airport. In addition, some tours combine helicopter ride with Milford Sound Cruise. However, these combination tours usually don’t include flying time over some of the best sights of Milford Sound and mostly used to reduce transportation time from Queenstown to Milford Sound.
