Milford Sound (Piopiotahi)

Stunning Milford Sound

Described by Rudyard Kipling as the eighth wonder of the world, Milford Sound has to be seen to be believed. The sheer scale of the towering mountains which rise up over a mile from the waters beneath will leave you in awe.

Every year, thousands of people visit Milford Sound on bus tours, taking a 2 hour boat cruise on the fiord itself.  But Fiordland Helicopters will take you further, showing you the incomparable beauty of Milford Sound and Fiordland by air.  You can only really experience the scale and grandeur of the scenery by flying over native forests and cascading waterfalls.

We can also connect you to the boats for the chance to get up close and personal with rare wildlife such as Fiordland Crested Penguins, New Zealand Fur Seals and Dusky and Bottlenose Dolphins.

Scenic Milford Helicopter Route

Departing & returning to Te Anau with Fiordland Helicopters is a great way to experience this world famous location. We are closer to the scenery so you can explore more with us. View Sutherland Falls, Mitre Peak and the Murchison Mountains (where the last remaining Takahe birds were rediscovered in 1948)

Some of our wilderness landings on this route include ancient glaciers and a stunning alpine lake. Very few people have the opportunity to land here. Fiordland Helicopters has the privilege of owning National Park concessions which does not restrict to designated landing sites.
