Milford and Fiordland Highlights

Milford and Fiordland Highlights

Over the years, our pilots have discovered some amazing sites in Fiordland.  Only accessible by helicopter, stepping out into this environment can really take your breath away. Our “Highlights” trip takes you through Milford Sound, out to the West Coast and the surrounding Southern Alps glacier areas, showing off what our diverse environment really has to offer.

Your helicopter will lift off from Queenstown and fly you high over the snow-capped Southern Alps to the majestic Milford Sound. Sit back and enjoy the view as you fly through Milford Sound giving you a birds-eye view of the waterfalls and rainforests below. Where the Sound reaches the Tasman Sea, you will head north and land on a remote West Coast beach, allowing you time to take a stroll and spot some of the nearby wild animals and seal colonies. From the beach, the helicopter turns inland to the glacier areas where you will land high up on a deserted glacier, allowing you time to explore, breathe in the pure alpine air and take more photographs of this magical place. The flight back to Queenstown from the glaciers will then take you high above the alpine lakes and rivers and finally over Lake Wakatipu back to Over The Tops Heli base.
