Te Anau Helicopter Services

Select Option


This scenic flight visits both Doubtful Sound and Dusky Sound. Two of Fourteen beautiful Fiords within the Fiordland National Park.

Doubtful Sound is the second largest Fiord in the Fiordland National Park and is most popular next to Milford Sound. Dusky Sound is one of the largest and complex Fiords in Fiordland, being 40km long and 8km at the widest part, it encompasses many islands and was named by Caption Cook in 1773.

What You'll Get

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.
