Fly Fiordland is locally owned and operated in Te Anau, providing spectacular scenic flights to the Fiordland National Park, and the “Eighth Wonder of the World,” Milford Sound.
Boasting 3 Cessna aircraft and a friendly team of experienced pilots, our emphasis is to share our passion for the park and the place that we call home. Operating in the region since 2011, we are committed to giving fun and personal service as you experience some of the worlds most beautiful undisturbed locations.
We do it because we love it, and we know you will too.
