Fly Fiordland - Doubtful Sound Over Flight Ex Te Anau

Add to List

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

Duration: Approximately 40 minute flight time

Price: $335 per person

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!

Stunning Flight

Jaw dropping. Having done a cruise on Doubtful it was great to do a fly over and tour. Very pleasant pilot and guide. Highly recommended.

Great experience

weather wasn't good for the doubtful sound flight so the staff gave me the option of flying over Milford Sound. It was definitely worth it and the pilots were friendly and informative.

Unmissable

Booked as a last minute extravagance after taking a boat on Milford around the day before. Incredible experience, seeing the scale of the place from the air, the waterfalls and lakes from above... just stunning. No other way can give you a sense of the wilderness of the peaks of fiordland. Save on other activities to do this!! And great pilot too!
