Scenic Flights - Fiordland Helicopters

Fiordland Helicopters was formed in the mid-1980s. With hangars in both Te Anau and Orawia (just outside of Tuatapere), we are at the doorstep of the breathtaking Fiordland region. The team offer an extensive range of professional helicopter services. Fiordland Helicopters is a New Zealand Civil Aviation approved air transport operator and a member of the Aviation Industry Association of New Zealand. We are, therefore, one of a small number of operators with landing permits within the conservation areas of Fiordland and Southland. We take this privilege seriously and are proud custodians of the landscape.


  • Unfortgettable flights into the Fiordland National Park

  • Highly experienced pilots

  • Wilderness landing included with every flight


Full Description

At Fiordland Helicopters, we offer scenic helicopter flights which cover the most spectacular areas of the Fiordland World Heritage National Park.


This includes the world famous location of Milford Sound and the lesser visited Doubtful and Dusky Sounds. Our National Park concessions allow multiple landings, and give freedom of choice on flight paths and landing locations. We are not limited to designated landing sites on popular scenic flight routes. This freedom, combined with our experienced pilots’ knowledge is invaluable in our quest to share the best of Fiordland with you.


We can adapt any of our scenic flights on offer to suit what it is you would like to witness during your time in Fiordland.


Complimentary tickets to Ata Whenua, Shadowland. Exclusive to Fiordland Cinema
