When a place is so special it’s been awarded World Heritage status, seeing it from the air is an absolute Must-Do. From our spectacular Milford Sound scenic helicopter flights to getting off the beaten track with our Expedition Fiordland or landing in a hanging valley in Doubtful Sound, our scenic helicopter flights makes an unforgettable addition to your New Zealand vacation. Flying in this part of the world is our passion, and we operate bases in Te Anau and Aoraki Mount Cook.

Stunningly Beautiful. Amazing trip with Heff as our pilot. Scenic views breathtaking & landings amazing. Views can’t be seen anywhere else in the world.
WORTH EVERY PENNY! We did the Doubtful Sound flight and it was the most amazing experience I have ever done! Craig was an amazing pilot who was super chill and easy to chat with and made it just that little bit better.
Our photos do not do justice to the feeling of standing what felt like the top of the world. The feeling of total amazement was worth every dollar it cost to do and I’d do it again when we can. This is an absolute must do and I’d highly recommend Southern Lakes Helicopters.
Trip of a lifetime!! Pristine wilderness, fab pilot and staff: an experience I will NEVER forget!!! A MUST DO for anyone visiting Fiordland. No matter what your budget, figure out a way to make it happen. A 360 degree sensory experience that will keep you buzzing for days. Do it.
