The Coach-Cruise-Fly trip is for those who want to experience the best that Milford Sound has to offer. This trip includes a close-up view of the vegetation of the Eglington Valley, a visit to Te Anau township on the shores of Lake Te Anau and a stop-off at the Mirror Lakes, courtesy of your luxury coach journey through Fiordland National Park to Milford Sound. Upon arrival at your Milford Sound tour, you’ll board the Gem of the Sound Cruise for a leisurely 2hr boat ride along the length of the Sound, beneath the towering granite cliffs and with a dip under Stirling Falls as the boat drifts under the waterfall. On returning to the berth, you’ll be introduced to your pilot who will escort you to your awaiting aircraft for an awe-inspiring flight through the glacier-carved valleys back to Queenstown.
The sheer scale and staggering beauty of Milford can be experienced from a different perspective as the aircraft climbs out over the fjord, returning to Queenstown past majestic peaks, over glacial formed river valleys and waterfalls. You’ll also have a view of the road that you travelled earlier in the day by coach, giving you the full perspective of the vast landscape that makes up the Fiordland and aspiring National Parks. As you arrive back over Lake Wakatipu, you’ll make your descent into Queenstown Airport. On arrival, our ground staff will meet you and arrange your courtesy transport to your accommodation upon completion of the Milford Sound tour.
All seats on the plane are window seats and our pilots provide an interesting and informative commentary.
