Over The Top - The Helicopter Company Milford Sound and the Glaciers

Starting in Queenstown, the Milford Sound and the Glaciers excursion takes you on a journey over the rugged tussock high country of Queenstown and out over the Southern Alps where the landscape dramatically changes. U-shaped valleys carved by glaciers millions of years ago are lined with primeval native beech forests.  High alpine lakes glisten like jewels as you soar towards Milford Sound.  

Upon reaching Milford Sound, take in the scale and beauty of the enormous sea cliffs and the many waterfalls that pour out from the valleys.  

On the return leg to Queenstown, touch down on a glacier and the helicopter is turned off for you to enjoy the calm silence of this incredible alpine environment.

This is a great trip to do if time is limited and you want to see as much as you can within a few hours. Also see our other Milford and Fiordland trips on offer.
