Explore Hollyford, Big Bay and Doubtful Sound Heli Hike

Departing Te Anau the flight will follow the shores of Lake Te Anau to the first landing location at Lake Erskine.  Once airborne the flight continues north and will land adjacent to Hidden Falls on the Hollyford Track.  This is a well formed track through native beech forest.

Upon arrival at Lake Alabaster Hut, approximately 3 hours later, the helicopter will be waiting to transfer you over the Hollyford River and Lake Alabaster to Big Bay, where you will be treated to a gourmet packed lunch and drinks.

From Big Bay the flight will follow the coastal route and fly over the world famous Milford Sound before landing at Lake Quill, head of the magnificent Sutherland Falls. From there the flight will continue south over glacial carved mountain tops, through steep sided valleys and over high alpine mountain tarns before the final landing at Campbell's Kingdom in Doubtful Sound.

This beautiful hanging valley comes complete with its own small lake and waterfall.  Finally you will return to Te Anau over the Main Divide and the Kepler Mountain Range.
