Day 1 : The Works

Weaving in three of Fiordland’s best wilderness destinations – Dusky Sound, Doubtful Sound, and iconic Milford Sound – this is our premier Heli-flight experience and includes 3 landings. Tamatea/Dusky Sound is one of our most remote and longest fiords. Dotted with 350 small islands, it’s only accessible by air or by boat – there is no road or walking trail – making it a very special place to explore by helicopter. Patea/Doubtful Sound has an incredible serenity, with Patea meaning “the place of silence” in te reo Māori. You’ll fly over Crooked Arm along with several of the fiord’s most impressive waterfalls. Seeing Campbell’s Kingdom from the air is a real highlight – this hanging valley is the stuff of storybooks and movie scenes! Piopiotahi/Milford Sound is iconic and was once referred to as the eighth wonder of the natural world. From the air, it’s easy to see why. Rainforests cling to soaring granite cliffs that leap out of inky water. The Pembroke Glacier, the Sutherland Falls, and Mitre Peak look all the more beautiful from above.
