SOUTHERN ALPS AIR
Are you planning to visit Milford Sound during your New Zealand holiday or thinking about exploring New Zealand's wilderness by air, land or sea? If so, Southern Alps Air have got you covered. It can offer you breath taking scenic experiences departing from the beautiful lakeside township of Wanaka or from nearby Makarora Valley. Flying from Wanaka is a 1 hour, 30 minutes return flight, giving you unenviable views of Mt Aspiring, the many impressive glaciers, waterfalls, the Olivine ice plateau and more as you pass through the Mt Aspiring & Fiordland national parks. You can fly the length of Milford Sound before landing and joining a two-hour scenic boat cruise and returning to Wanaka on a different route - or fly to Mt Cook and the Fox & Franz Josef glaciers or Mt Aspiring and glaciers. The options are endless. If you're feeling a bit more adventurous, try a half day Fly-Walk-Jetboat experience where you 'll immerse yourself in nature as you fly deep into the Mt Aspiring National Park and land amongst the spectacular mountains that are the Southern Alps. You then set off on a three-hour nature hike on a well formed track that connects the remote Siberia Valley with the Wilkin River Valley. At the end of the track you'll meet up with the jet boat that will whisk you back to where your adventure started this is the Siberia Experience.
