Winter is on its way. The first couple of southerly blasts have come through, so it won't be long now until there is snow on the mountains. A good day in winter is as good as the scenery gets for flying in this region.
When you visit New Zealand a trip to world famous Milford Sound is a must. And the best way to see it is by air. A 35 minute scenic flight from either Queenstown or Te Anau can have you in Milford Sound connecting with a cruise along the Fjord.
We have scheduled flights departing daily from Queenstown, Te Anau and Milford Sound. Our most popular flight is the Fly/Cruise/Fly which has a duration of 4.5 hours. For those of you with only a little time an overfly of Milford Sound is the way to go, taking about 1 hour and 10 minutes. There are coach and fly options also and combos combining the Dart River Safari with Milford Sound and also a fly and wine tour experience.
We specialize in remote area flying and charter work, if you are into hiking or hunting we can deliver you to some of the more out of the way areas to enjoy the scenery by yourself. Check out our flights pages for all our options.
Air Fiordland has been flying since 1984 from Queenstown and Te Anau and has a wealth of knowledge about the region to share with you. We provide every passenger with a window seat from which to view the unsurpassed beauty of Fiordland National Parks snow capped mountains, crystal clear lakes, spectacular waterfalls and ancient beech forests.
It took millions of years for nature to create the towering mountains and for the glaciers to carve its deep fjords. It will take you only a few hours to enjoy this magnificent scenery with one of our many flight options.
We look forward to showing you the sights of Queenstown, Milford Sound, Doubtful Sound, Te Anau and Fiordland. See you soon.
