Lift off from the Over The Top departure lounge at 0900 (or at a time to suit) for a spectacular and exclusive helicopter flight over alps and glacial lakes before descending into Milford Sound, the first of fourteen fiords / or into the heart of Fiordland, Dusky Sound in the south west corner of the south island of New Zealand. Acclaimed World Heritage Status for its extreme beauty, rear birds and geological feature.

Touch down and put your feet in the sand and feel the power of the thunderous ocean waves stretching ceaselessly beyond you before entering Doubtful Sound, the sound of silence being about 50 kilometres from the nearest inhabited place, with great wildlife this truly is a fiord worth visiting.
