Milford Encounter

What better way to see this iconic location than by helicopter? Lift from Heliworks Hangar and see the Wakatipu basin unfold in front of you as you climb up and over Queenstown itself before crossing the Richardson Mountains on your way to Milford Sound. The Dart and Rees rivers meet the head of Lake Wakatipu to the North and the Greenstone and Caples valleys, famous for their back country fishing to the South. Fly over the Hollyford valley and enjoy views of numerous alpine lakes before landing at Milford Sound itself. Enjoy a short nature walk through the native bush as your pilot shows you some of the wildlife, flora and fauna found in this beautiful area. Return to Heliworks over the Humboldt Mountains and enjoy a landing with either spectacular lake views or a distinctly glacial vista!
