Milford Sound Overhead Flights (via Alps and Glaciers)

Some things can only truly be experienced through a Milford Sound flight. Mitre Peak is an iconic New Zealand mountain and its distinctive peak inspired the crew of survey ship, the Acheron, to name it for a bishop’s mitre (headwear). Flying over Mitre Peak is a wonderful way to truly appreciate its grandeur. Your trip will also take in the visually magnificent:

  • Sutherland, Bowen and Stirling Falls
  • Fiordland Glaciers
