Half Day Doubtful Sound - Southern Lakes Helicopters
Doubtful sound is one of the largest and most spectacular fiords. It maori name patea, means sound of silence, and you can experience this on our Doubtful scenic flight as it offers a spectacular birds' eye view of the rugged mountains, waterfalls and rainforests.
Setting off from our Te Anau base, you will soar high above the Iris Burn Valley and Lake Manapouri, also known as the "Lake of Many Islands". Here you will be able to spot the infamous West Arm Power Station before flying up and over the Wilmot Pass into Doubtful Sound. This long and winding fiord is one of Fiordlands' deepest and is home to a number of stunning waterfalls. If the weather is suitable, your helicopter will detour into the magical Campbells Kingdom, a beautiful hanging valley encompassing a lake and a waterfall which really is the stuff of fairy tales brought to life. From here, you will soar over the Main Divide of the Southern Alps for a second remote landing at the scenic Mount Kidd. Make sure you have your camera or phone well charged for this flight as you'll want to re-visit the scenes and landscapes you visit over and over again!
No extra costs with the flight unless you would like to do one of our add ons. These include a picnic at one of the landings or a hike option.
