Option to add on; venue styling and floral arch, bride gown and or groom suit hire and helicopter landings in various other locations. Locations can include waterfalls, glaciers, mountain lakes, Milford Sound and the West Coast.
Unwind you did it! Enjoy a stunning day trip to Milford Sound!
Milford Sound is an area of extraordinary beauty. It offers a majestic fiord, dramatic and awe inspiring scenery and prolific flora and fauna. Each tour begins with a complimentary pick-up from your accommodation. The pilot will then give a briefing on the route and scenic highlights likely to be encountered. These include the famous Skippers Canyon, the Paradise region (made popular as film locations for Lord of the Rings/Hobbit Trilogies), and the Donne glacier among many other awe-inspiring features. The 35 minute flight concludes with an over flight of the fiord of Milford Sound, prior to landing.
The second half of the adventure begins in Milford Sound, where your pilot personally escorts you to the boat to enjoy your Milford Sound Nature Cruise. Numbers aboard are capped and on this intimate experience, Nature Guides offer a personal commentary. The “Spirit of Milford” catamaran explores nooks and crannies along the edge of the fiord, nudging into sheer rock faces to examine flora and fauna in detail.
Following your Milford Sound cruise, your return flight takes in many of the pristine alpine lakes and waterfalls that Fiordland National Park is recognised for, including the Sutherland Falls which span 580m (1900 ft).
In the evening, enjoy a night in Arrowtown if you wish. This quaint township has an array of restaurants that are a must to try! Make a dinner reservation at Aosta for a taste of Italy, or perhaps Fantan might be more up your alley if you are looking for a spin on Asian Pacifica cuisine followed by a drink in The Blue Door to finish off your night.
