An expert pilot takes you sightseeing into the heart of the UNESCO-listed Fiordland with unrivaled aerial views of the lush rainforest, bush-lined valleys and crevasse-filled glaciers between Queenstown and Milford Sound. Start your helicopter tour with hotel pickup before taking to the skies on a 1.5-hour scenic ride. En route, listen to the pilot’s informative commentary about the stunning landscape below.
