Journey deep into the heart of Fiordland’s remote wilderness with our Dusky Sound and Doubtful Sound Scenic Flight.

Departing from our Te Anau lake front helicopter pad, begin by soaring over picturesque Lake Manapouri and above the Kilcoy mountains. A landing is made at Mt Pender, where we shut down the helicopter to enable you to soak up the grandeur. One of Fiordland’s largest and most remote fiords, 40km-long Dusky Sound is dotted with more than 350 small islands. Access to the sound is by sea or air only – very few people get to experience the beauty of this magical place.

Once airborne again, you’ll fly over three more impressive fiords before descending into Crooked Arm in Doubtful Sound. Often called the ‘Sound of Silence’ because of the total serenity that blankets the Sound, Doubtful is long, winding and home to several stunning waterfalls. While flying up this fiord you’ll detour into a unique hanging valley known as Campbell’s Kingdom, complete with its own lake and waterfall. At this stage you might want to pinch yourself. This is the New Zealand you came to see.

The return journey flies aloft the Main Divide of the Southern Alps with a second landing at Mt Kidd, a remote alpine location with dramatic views.

  • Land at Mt Pender in Dusky Sound, one of our most remote Fiords
