Full description
Your unique wilderness adventure departs from Te Anau and soars over the picturesque Lake Manapouri and above the stunning Kilcoy mountains. A landing is then made at Mount Pender where the helicopter will be shut down to allow you to soak up the peaceful grandeur of the landscape. From here, explore one of Fiordland’s largest and most remote fiords, the 40 km long Dusky Sound which is dotted with more than 350 small islands.

Once airborne again, fly over three more of the park’s impressive fiords before descending into Crooked Arm in Doubtful Sound. Often called the ’Sound of Silence’, because of the total serenity that blankets the region, Doubtful sound is long, winding, and home to several stunning waterfalls. While flying around this fiord, take a detour to a unique hanging valley known as Campbell’s Kingdom, complete with its own lake and waterfall.

Throughout the journey, admire some of the very best views that New Zealand has to offer, and immerse yourself in a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. On the return journey, fly along the Main Divide of the Southern Alps and enjoy a second landing at Mount Kidd, a remote alpine location with sprawling, dramatic views.
