Our scenic flight to Milford Sound will give you breathtaking views of some of the highest and most photographed mountains of Fiordland. Fly to Milford Sound with Southern Lakes Helicopters so you can take time to enjoy the view. Make time while in Te Anau to experience this amazing helicopter flight.
Depart from our Te Anau Lakefront Helipad and follow the shores of Lake Te Anau to make the first landing at Mt Skelmorlie. This is a picturesque area that looks down on the famous Milford Track and Clinton Valley. Airborne again we overfly the remote Wick Mountains and rugged landscape including Lake Iceberg, so called because it grows Icebergs!
Views of Mitre Peak and Milford Sound unfold as we circuit the fiord to follow the Milford Track, flying over the McKinnon Pass before landing at Lake Quill, source of the famous Sutherland Falls. Milford Sound itself is 15kms long from the Tasman Sea to the Deep Water Basin harbour.
The rugged beauty of the Fiordland National Park will unfold before your eyes as you enjoy this helicopter trip. Returning to Te Anau is a gradual descent back to reality.
