Doubtful Sound and Dusky Sound Helicopter Flight from Te Anau

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Departing from Te Anau airport, head west over Lake Manapouri for Dusky Sound. Passing over head New Zealand's famous hydroelectric power station at the West Arm.

    Tracking along a glacier carved valley, you will cross from the East coast of New Zealand to the West coast and into Dusky Sound. A remote alpine landing will show you how isolated this part of Fiordland is and also how beautiful and untouched the mountains are. You are welcome to take as many photos as you like so you can take these memories home forever.

    After lifting off from the remote landing site, you make your way towards Doubtful Sound, and its many arms which meander off the main Fiord. Another landing in Doubtful Sound brings more great photo opportunities.

    Once again crossing the Southern Alps heading East this time back to Te Anau Airport, you will have views of Lake Manapouri and the Kepler Mountains.

    The weather was proving to be a real hindrance for me to experience what later became the highlight of my whole trip. Staci in the office had prepared me the day before and even the morning of that the flight wouldn't be able to take...More
