Flight Connections

Milford Sound

Flying over the Southern Alps between Queenstown and Milford is the ultimate way to experience southern New Zealand’s dramatic alpine scenery.

A hidden landscape unfolds below, revealing glacial lakes, waterfalls, deep valleys and cloud-piercing summits. Our aircraft are specially selected for the mountainous terrain of Fiordland and Mount Aspiring National Parks. All our pilots are specifically trained for alpine flying and provide an informative commentary along the way.

On landing at the Milford Sound airstrip you are transferred to the harbour where you board your selected Real Journeys cruise.  Choose from a these cruise/fly options:
- Scenic Cruises: cruise the fiord on a modern spacious vessel
Nature Cruises: relaxed, extended cruise with specialist nature guide

You can choose to fly both ways or to fly back to Queenstown after travelling the spectacular overland route to Milford Sound on our luxury coach. Fly-back options are available with Nature, Scenic and overnight cruises.

Flights depart daily from the Real Journeys Visitor Terminal, Lucas Place, Queenstown Airport

Alternatively, if you do not have enough time to complete a flight and cruise, you can join our "Fly Over" excursion. This option allows you to view the mountainous terrain of Milford Sound, Fiordland and Mount Aspiring National Parks from the air, in the comfort of our aircraft. Please note that on occasions, we may land at Milford Sound to collect more passengers for the return flight.
