What you can expect

Setting off from Te Anau, discover one of the remarkable treasures of the New Zealand Fiords on a 70 minute Doubtful Sound scenic helicopter flight. Watch as awe-inspiring rugged mountains, rainforest and hidden inlets come into your vision as you soar high over the Fiordlands. The pilot will then fly over Wilmot Pass and track along the long and winding Doubtful Sound Fiord home to several cascading waterfalls.

If the weather is suitable on the day, passengers will also enter the magical Campbell’s Kingdom, a beautiful hidden valley encompassing a lake and waterfall. From here, glimpse Bradshaw Sound before soaring over the Main Divide of the Southern Alps for a second remote landing at Mount Kidd.
