Day 1 : Milford Sound

Soaring over the shores of Lake Te Anau to our first landing we fly high above the remote Wick Mountains and the rugged landscapes that surround this range. Look out for Lake Iceberg, which does exactly what its name says – grows icebergs! Soak up the stunning views of Mitre Peak and Piopiotahi/Milford Sound as they unfold below; we circuit the fiord to follow the route of the Milford Track. Soaring over the McKinnon Pass – one of the tougher parts of the Milford – we land at Lake Quill, a hanging lake that is the source of the famous Sutherland Falls. Milford Sound itself is 15kms long, running from the Tasman Sea to Deep Water Basin Harbour. Rich in pounamu, it has an ancient Māori history of intrepid journeys here to gather the precious stone. Returning to Te Anau, the rugged beauty of Fiordland National Park unfolds before your eyes.
