Dusky Sound is an incredibly beautiful, remote fiord with more than 350 small islands. It is one of the largest fiords at 40kms in length and you can experience it from the comfort of our scenic helicopter flight. Departures are from our Te Anau lakefront helicopter pad or other locations by arrangement.
This flight takes you over the picturesque Lake Manapouri and above the Kilcoy mountains before descending into Dusky Sound. A landing is made at Mt Pender, where we shut the helicopter down to enable you to fully experience the beauty and solitude of this special historic area.
When airborne again, you fly overtop 3 more impressive fiords before descending into Crooked Arm in Doubtful Sound. While flying up this fiord you detour into a unique hanging valley known as Campbell’s Kingdom, complete with its own lake and waterfall.
The return journey takes you aloft the Main Divide of the Southern Alps with a second landing at Mt Kidd, a remote alpine location with dramatic views.
