What you need to know

Only by the air can you uncover the spectacular beauty of the remote wilderness of New Zealand’s fiordlands with two special alpine landings. Book this Dusky Doubtful Sound helicopter flight to witness silent fiords, hanging valleys and waterfalls over an unforgettable 1 hour and 45 minute adventure.

Take off from the Te Anau lakefront helicopter pad and begin with a fly over Lake Manapouri and the Kilcoy Mountains before descending into Dusky Sounds for the first alpine landing at Mt Pender. Stretch the legs and take a moment to soak up the grandeur of the area.

Back in the air, you’ll follow the path of the 40km Dusky Sound dotted with over 350 islands, an area only accessible by sea or air. Fly over three more impressive fiords before dropping in over Crooked Arm in the Doubtful Sound to experience the beauty and solitude of this special landmark.

Detour into a unique hanging valley known as Campbell’s Kingdom complete with its own lake and waterfall. The magical scenic flight continues over the Southern Alps with a second landing at Mount Kidd boasting dramatic views as far as the eye can see. You don’t want to miss out on this extraordinary adventure from Te Anau.
