Doubtful & Milford Sounds
If you really want to see Fiordland in all its beauty then this is the flight for you –the diversity of this special landscape will astound! Lift from Heliworks past the iconic Remarkables mountain range and across Lake Wakatipu to the South. After crossing the Mavora Lakes the peaks of Southern Fiordland come into view across Lake Te Anau – the largest lake in the South Island. World Heritage Fiordland National Park now unfolds in front of you; with lush rainforest and towering mountains plummeting into the waters of Doubtful Sound itself. Keep an eye out for some of the abundant wildlife – dolphins and seals around the ocean, with keas, kakas and hawks soaring above.
Fly over the Sound before turning into the hidden valley of Campbell’s Kingdom, almost prehistoric in its landscape complete with lake and waterfall! Now fly North across the remote peaks and valleys towards Milford Sound. See Lake Quill and the Sutherland Falls – New Zealand’s second highest waterfall and certainly one of the most impressive – and the rugged West Coast before Milford Sound takes us inland. See lady Bowen Falls and Stirling Falls before climbing to Fiordland’s highest peak Mt Tutoko. Cross the Hollyford valley before we descend into one of our favourite and also exclusive landing sites – the Earnslaw Burn with its blue ice and cascading waterfalls. Finally cross the Richardson Mountains and see the Shotover River below as you return to Heliworks.
