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.

As a wheelchair user, Southern Lakes helicopters were amazing. Right from arranging the flight to lifting me into the helicopter, they were great. We had 2 landings which were awesome and even saw a pod of dolphins.
Outstanding flight and scenery. There was no favourite part of the trip, the whole Doubtful and Dusky Sound flight was amazing. Davey was a brilliant pilot explaining where we were and where we were going.
Absolutely the best experience we’ve ever had. Having seen Machu Pichu, The Statue of Christ etc this helicopter experience absolutely surpassed everything and anything else we’ve done.
Amazing trip, a great combo. Thanks team for making it such stunning day. The images from the helicopter flight are still whizzing through our heads!
