Flight Overview

Over the years, our pilots have discovered some amazing sites in Fiordland.  

Over The Top’s Milford Highlights excursion combines all the aspects of Milford Sound, the West Coast and the surrounding Southern Alps glacier areas. Your helicopter will lift off from Queenstown and fly you high over the snow-capped Southern Alps to the stunningly beautiful Milford Sound. Sit back and enjoy the view as you fly down 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 seal colonies. From the beach, the helicopter turns inland to the glacier areas where again you will land, allowing you time to explore and take more photographs of a 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 helibase.
