Fly Fiordland - Doubtful Sound Over Flight Ex Te Anau

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

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

Price: $335 per person

Wonderful experience

Absolutely the best way to explore the fjord, I’ve also been to the cruise tour but can't compare to this. The only thing needs to notice is the weather. We couldn't go the first day because of the cloudy skies, it’s easy to reschedule, the second day morning, after a while of waiting for the weather, we finally aboard the plane! 非常棒的体验,后面去了邮轮tour,和这个比起来差距蛮大的。一定要提前确认天气,天气好的时候特别美

Rob was fantastic!

My partner was feeling nervous about this flight but our pilot, Rob, was fantastic. He explained everything and was really encouraging. He was also very knowledgeable and made the flight very interesting. The flight itself was beautiful, going through the sound and around the coastline. We saw beautiful landscapes and would highly recommend this flight!
