Flew from Milford to Te Anau. Amazing view of the Sound, and a complete new prospective on the size and shape of Fiordland. Clearing the lip at 6000ft over Sutherland Falls was just something else. Pilot was both informative and courteous throughout.

The trip took us over forest, rugged alpine terrain and lakes to the West Coast at Doubtful Sound. The landscape has to be seen to be believed and much of it is only accessible by air.

We went on a helicopter tour of the fjords around Doubtful and Dusky sounds. It lasts about an hour and half and costs a fortune. It is in a small four guest helicopter, with the pilot providing a running commentary. It is an incredibly exciting...More
