Discover the history of Fiordland by exploring the Southern Alps and the rugged West Coast of New Zealand.

This flight departs from our Te Anau Lakefront helicopter pad. Your journey begins by soaring over the Main Divide of the Southern Alps followed by the Wilmot Pass into Doubtful Sound.

This long and winding fiord is home to several stunning waterfalls. If the weather is suitable, your helicopter will detour into magical Campbell’s Kingdom, a beautiful hanging valley encompassing a lake and a waterfall. From here, take a peek at Breaksea Sound before arriving in one of Fiordland’s largest and most remote fiords, 40km-long Dusky Sound which is dotted with more than 350 small islands. Access to the sound is by sea or air only. This is where the second landing is made at Mt Sparrman. From here flight path will take you to the bottom of New Zealand’s rugged West Coast where a remote wild landscape unveils a unique slice of early Māori and European history. This is where we will make our final landing at Puysegur Point, to enable you to soak up this magical place. We recommend adding our picnic to enjoy at one of the landing locations.
