To Milford Sound – Part 1

Awesome trip to Milford Sound with Wanaka Flightseeing last weekend. The weather was perfect and the water calm.

We left Wanaka and flew out over the Lake Wanaka after passing over Maple Lodge – it was great to see it fromthe air.

As we flew out over Wanaka we passed Treble Cone ski field and had fabulous views all over Mt Aspiring National Park. Lake Wanaka is the gateway to the National Park where there are many tramps available to the more energetic holiday maker. The 3-4 hour walk to Rob Roy Glacier is a very popular choice of travellers to Wanaka – there are not many places where you can take a short walk and be up close and personal with a glacier.
