A fantastic full-day Fiordland experience that truly does have it all. Begin with a spectacular 15 minute helicopter ride to take in the scenery of Te Anau township and Mount Luxmore, enjoying a birds eye view of the hidden lakes and beech forests that dot the landscape en route. Upon landing, explore the golden tussock fields and unique flora of this high alpine area – and did we mention the views! From here, you’ll look out over the township and across to Fiordland’s World Heritage wilderness.
Enjoy the views before hiking a well-formed, easy going downhill section of the Kepler Track. Walk past towering limestone bluffs, through rainforests that ring with birdsong and catch glimpses of lake views as you descend to Lake Te Anau.
Once you reach Brod Bay, you will be picked up via our water taxi for the boat ride back to Te Anau. This part of the day offers an awesome perspective of the journey you’ve just been on, with the boat cruise being an enjoyable, relaxing end to things.
You can choose to enjoy this adventure independently or with your own private guide. Having our guide, Bard Crawford, with you truly does transform a trip into an experience. Guides can translate what you otherwise can’t see so you can’t see, look and feel nature and make the most of your time here in Fiordland. Nature is our business and we love it so we recommend investing in taking one of our team with you to guide you on your adventure but if you choose to explore by yourself, we are on hand to make sure your experience is still top-notch.
Available year-round, on demand, approx. 4 hours and includes heli + water taxi transfer.
