Doubtful Sound: Scenic Flight with 2 Landings

1. Doubtful Sound: Scenic Flight with 2 Landings

Experience the stunning Fiordland National Park from the sky. Soar high above the Iris Burn Valley and Lake Manapouri, also known as the "Lake of Many Islands". Spot the infamous West Arm Power Station on Lake Manapouri before flying up and over the Wilmot Pass into Doubtful Sound. This long and winding fiord is one of Fiordland’s deepest and is home to a number of stunning waterfalls. Your helicopter will detour into magical Campbell’s Kingdom, a beautiful hanging valley encompassing a lake and a waterfall. This is the stuff of fairytales. From here, take a peek at Bradshaw Sound before soaring over the Main Divide of the Southern Alps for a second remote landing at scenic Mount Kidd. Make sure you have the camera or phone well charged for this flight — you’ll want to revisit the scenes and landscapes you visit over and over again.

What people are saying about Te Anau

We had the most amazing trip!! All the staff were lovely and helpful, nothing was too much. Our pilot was Matt, he was very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease, I was nervous about our flight as I’d never been on a helicopter before, but by the end i was sitting in the front! It was definitely a once in a lifetime experience and would highly recommend anyone to do it, I know you wouldn’t regret it!

Amazing views and almost unreal. We were just 4 people which is preferable as all manage to sit in the front seat (which Is a total different experience) Sam, the driver, hats off to him as a fantastic driver and guide. Definitely recommend it.

Fantastic trip. The best way to see the Sounds. The 2 landings on the top of mountains made it extra special. Views were spectacular
