Great Walks
Scenic Flight Connections

Air Milford is excited to be connecting with all three Fiordland Great Walks from 2023/24 Summer.

Walking the Kepler, Routeburn or Milford Track are on the bucket list for many. What better way to top off your Great Walks hiking adventure with a scenic flight back over it, to revisit where you’ve come from and what you have achieved!

Air Milford is the only operator to exclusively offer flight connections in partnership with DOC and Trips & Tramps either to begin or to end your Great Walk.  Our Te Anau Downs airstrip is situated on the Milford Road and allows us to offer a direct service to begin any of these great walks.

Flights to Milford Sound from Queenstown - Mitre Peak View
  • One way Scenic Flight direct to/from Te Anau Downs (35 minutes) either to commence or to conclude your Great Walks hike.
  • Courtesy pick up or drop off to your centrally located Queenstown accommodation.



Pre track briefing at a DOC office is no longer a requirement. However Air Milford strongly advise that you call ahead to the nearest DOC office for a weather update.

While we are unable to organise shuttle transfers to the start of your Great Walk, we can instead assist by referring you to the best coach companies if needed.
