Why Choose to Fly to Milford Sound from Lake Wanaka - Because of where Wanaka is located in relation to Milford Sound you will fly further and see more glaciers, waterfalls and other spectacular sights than flying from another location during the 1.5 hr circular flight.Save time - it's 10hrs return by road. View huge chunks of Mt Aspiring & Fiordland World Heritage National Parks.It's simply the best location to choose to see the best views. Enjoy stunning vistas of rugged untouched wilderness, glaciers galore, mountains, snow, ice, rivers, valleys & rainforest. Alpine highlights too numerous to mention.
