Flight Overview

Perfected over the years, the Milford Ultimate is Over the Top’s trip of a lifetime. Relaxed and unhurried, you can make the most of each incredible environment your pilot takes you to.  Leaving Queenstown, we fly west over the high country peaks of Queenstown, towards the ‘Main Divide’ of the Southern Alps and into the World Heritage listed Fiordland National Park. The scenery unfolds dramatically with vast U-shaped glacier carved valleys rich with primeval beech forests.

The Milford Ultimate includes four landings, each at diverse and pristine locations where you can sip the pure waters of an alpine lake; take in the majestic Milford Sound; stroll along uninhabited wild yet beautiful west coast beaches, see the blue ice on glaciers high in the Alps and the fiords coastal rain forests. At each landing site, the helicopter will shut down for you to enjoy the quiet sound of the mountains.  Perhaps a curious Kea, New Zealand’s native parrot, will drop in to say hello.  No two Ultimate trips are the same.

This trip includes a gourmet picnic hamper of delightful cheeses, cold meats, breads, salads and fruit.  Sip champagne and a selection of non-alcoholic beverages at a location far from where others may travel.
