Milford Sound is tucked far away in the southwest of New Zealand, but oh so beautiful. If you’re visiting New Zealand you can’t leave without exploring the area. You’ll enter a world of dramatic scenery with its high mountains, waterfalls, sheer cliffs and wild sea.
Get ready for a wild ride above the New Zealand West Coast. The lovely and lush West Coast is also called Glacier Country; you’ll soon understand why. This area has it all, mountains, lakes, glaciers and forests right next to each other!
I’ve been almost three years in this gorgeous country and I have seen so much. I’ve done endless road trips, crawled over mountains, discovered little hidden spots, swam in the ocean and much more. But never had I seen this country from the sky. Until last November, when I flew over Mount Cook National Park and the Mackenzie region. I couldn’t believe my eyes seeing New Zealand from Above. Beee-eautiful!
An early morning not so long ago I stepped off a plane with a huge smile and the adrenaline bubbling in me. I had just seen New Zealand from above! For the first time I set foot in this country I did a scenic flight for 50 minutes. And trust me.. It is better from above! Or let’s say, immensely different than from the ground.
The flight left at 5.30 in the morning, to capture the sunrise from the air. There we a bit of clouds, but I still managed to take some pictures. We flew in the Mackenzie region, over Lake Tekapo, Mount Cook National Park, right in between the mountains. I adore the mountains with my feet on the ground, but I was just totally in awe seeing the scenery from above. Looks like I was visiting another planet.
