Fly Fiordland - Doubtful Sound Over Flight Ex Te Anau


Discover the beauty and wilderness of Doubtful Sound from the Air with Fly Fiordland.


  • Captivating scenic flight over Doubtful sound
  • Cessna high wing aircraft for the ultimate views
  • Interesting commentary

Doubtful Sound is even more remote and isolated than its near neighbour Milford Sound - taking in the grand scale of this isolation from the air imparts a powerful sense of solitude and serenity leaving you in awe of what is one of the most untouched corners of New Zealand.

This captivating scenic flight journeys over Lake Manapouri, to Deep Cove at the head of Doubtful Sound where fresh water from the Manapouri hydro power station meets the salt waters of the fiord.

From here you journey to the main body of Doubtful Sound where the Tasmin Sea will come into view. Traveling east from here we take in views of Lake Te Anua as we return to Manapouri Airport

A fantastic option if your looking for a truly awe inspiring "off the beaten track" New Zealand experience

Fantastic flight!

We did the private flight over Doubtful Sound as part of our honeymoon trip in NZ and we loved it! We learned so much about the area and had the best vantage point of the water, nature, mountains, and sky. We cannot recommend this trip more highly!!!
