Experience the beauty of Milford Sound and the Middle Earth Waterfalls

Your private guide will collect you in our luxury vehicle from your accommodation and take to you your private helicopter for an unforgettable flight to Milford Sound.

Rudyard Kipling called Milford Sound the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ and World Heritage status confirming its unique beauty.

Your scenic flight will take you above rainforest-covered valleys, past spectacular alpine lakes and mountain ranges, with a bird’s eye view of the stunning and world-famous Fiordland National Park.

You’ll land high up on Mt Tutoko, the highest mountain in Fiordland National Park, and get out to take photos in the snow with 360-degree views.

Middle Earth Waterfalls is our next destination, where we’ll fly past the epic blue ice of a hanging glacier before descending over 1000m to the valley floor.

In this pristine location, we’ll embark on a 1.5-hour heli hiking adventure, taking time to enjoy a beautiful picnic lunch and glass of wine in this idyllic spot amongst the waterfalls.

Suitably relaxed and feeling at one with nature, you’ll head back to Queenstown airport, passing over the Richardson mountain range as you hear about its rich mining history.

Great Day (Queenstown Wine and Cardrona Distillery Tour)

Our family of four booked a wine tour with Lee in late December 2019. Lee was extremely flexible and responsive to our group - his kind and friendly demeanor made the tour seem more like a day out with a friend rather than a tour. The tour (ie Lee) was full of interesting information, laughs and friendly exchange coupled with excellent locations to visit - the day was excellent from start to finish. Thank you, Lee!!1

Highly recommend any tour which will take your to the Middle Earth Waterfalls, this by far was the most amazing place / landscape i have ever seen. You got chills walking through this area! It was out of this world! Thanks again Lee for the amazing tour! If we are ever in Queenstown again, I know we'll be in touch!

Amazing trip to Milford Sound

Steve was a fantastic host and driver. Every part of the trip to Milford ran to time. Steves timing was impeccable resulting in crowd free stops at spectacular stops along the way. The drive included very informative commentary about features along the way as well as interesting history and modern interruptions related to NZ. The lunch provided was delicious. I would recommend alpine luxury tours to anyone wanting the personal touch to a tour whilst being kept informed along the way and have a bit of a laugh.
