Without a doubt one of the most incredible things I have ever done. We were originally just looking to fly over Doubtful Sound but decided if we were going to do it- may as well do Dusky as well! Daniella and Pilot Shaun were a joy, very friendly and made the experience unforgettable. So many untouched peaks, unnamed lakes and islands. Skip the cruises, do this instead!

We took pilot Shaun's advice and chose to have a flight over Doubtful and Dusky Sounds instead Milford as we initially planned. I must say it was surreal and unbelievable view! Totally worth it as the whole flight is above the mountains with unbelievable panoramas. Shaun is very experienced and told us a lot about the Fiordland as he is local. We felt very safe and would repeat it again!

We had only a day in Te Anau, so chose fly Fiordland to see as much as possible, the other option was a 2.5hr coach trip, for a 2.5hr boat trip, then the coach back again, we couldn’t face that, so paid the extra and flew, and obviously saw so much more than the coach and boat trip. The pilot was very experienced, and gave us commentary on what we were flying over or looking into the different sounds etc. We went to dusky sound, which was named by Captain Cook, as he arrived there at dusk. We also flew over the coast for many miles, just to see how bleak and windswept it is, forest right to the ocean, big rollers coming in, and nothing south until Antarctica. Much of the whole area was named by Captain Cook, Resolution Island after his ship, five fingered island, obviously looks like a hand, etc. We had a fabulous time, and so many fantastic views from the aircraft flying into the fiords and skimming the huge mountains. We would recommend this trip and company to anyone who has little time here, or can’t face hours in a coach.

I flew with Fly Fiordlands in January, Daniela went above and beyond to make sure that I could fly with someone (I was a solo traveler) even though I had little time in Te Anau and the weather was not perfect. The weather window was very short but the trip happened and it was the most amazing thing i had pleasure to experience my whole life. Daniela and Sean were very nice, made sure my every request was answered. Sean was a very nice guide during the flight, giving heads up on some of the most astonishing views and he has got quite a knowledge about Fiordlands. I took the Milford and Doubtful overflight and took some amazing shots of the glaciers and all the fiords. A MUST SEE. And flying with Fly Fiordlands is the best choice.
