Bookend a dwarfing cruise set against Milford Sound’s giant cliffs with sweeping aerial views of its raking geography
Exploration cruise | Mountains | Natural world
For a complete overview, it’s best to use at least half of the four elements. Fly out from Queenstown on an aircraft specifically designed for mountain flight, soaring over peaks both craggy grey and snow-pure white – the imposing frame for the fjord’s vast, shimmering waters. You’ll then board your ship to watch from the observation lounge or deck as the geological drama unfolds; there’s everything from sheer cliffs and tumbling waterfalls to ancient glaciers and old growth rainforests. Along the way, the informative crew will be on hand to point out the seals and dolphins that call this spectacular scenery home; it’s the perfect backdrop for your included picnic lunch. You’ll then fly back to Queenstown to yet more aerial panoramas – a scenic shortcut to an otherwise winding journey.
