West Coast Beaches and the Glaciers


West Coast Beaches and the Glaciers

Fly from towering mountains to rugged coast and experience the thrill of glacier flyover as we traverse the full length of Milford Sound to meet the Tasman Sea. Land on a remote West Coast beach and breathe in the fresh sea air before flying back towards Glenorchy to touch down on snow with breathtaking panoramic views overlooking the Dart River and Lake Wakatipu.

What to bring?

As you will be enjoying an alpine environment we recommend: 

  • Wearing sensible comfortable covered shoes, warm clothing and windproof jacket
  • To bring your camera, sunscreen, sunglasses and insect repellent
