Mountaintop glacier near Milford Sound
Fiordland National Park, New Zealand
Helicopter ride to Milford Sound from Queenstown, NZFor someone that doesn't like flying, this was an experience I will never forget...and may never have the courage to do again! My wife and then 4-year-old daughter shamed me out of my fears! Incredible views...landing on a mountaintop glacier where we cracked open a bottle of champagne, hovering over Milford Sound and its amazing peaks. It takes almost 8 hours to get to Milford Sound by bus from Queenstown. The helicopter took only 15 minutes to get there and was worth every Valium I had to take to get myself into the cockpit! A thrill ride not to be missed.
