WHAT TO EXPECT
Departing from Queenstown, enjoy breathtaking aerial views of glacier-fed braided rivers, endless snow-covered mountains and incredible glaciers as you fly over the Southern Alps before landing in Milford. Experience unimpaired views from your window seat as you fly through a landscape of unbelievable grandeur and beauty, above mountains and glaciers onboard our fixed-wing aircraft. Your knowledgeable, highly skilled local pilot will provide interesting and informative commentary during this 45-minute flight of a lifetime.
We'll team you up with our paddle partner Roscos to take on this spectacular winter adventure. There’s no better way to hang out in the fiords than on in a kayak. Exploring from sea level truly offers a different perspective to the grandeur of the towering peaks, sheer sides, and spectacular waterfall. Paddling out of Deep Water Basin to explore the world-famous fiord and its stunning scenery you'll have plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife and photograph waterfalls. This is an adventure not to be missed and is a spectacular paddle that is suitable for everyone.
After your trip you will meet your Glenorchy Air pilot will be ready and waiting for you to finish your day with more awe-inspiring views on your return to Queenstown as you soar above this World Heritage Area.
We're all here for the view and every seat on every plane is a window seat.
