This adventurous package provides the ultimate remote Fiordland wilderness experience. Across two days guests will enjoy the thrill of soaring above the Fiordland National Park, hiking one of New Zealand's Great Walks, and kayaking in one of the most stunning locations on earth, Doubtful Sound.
Day One - Guests will be collected after breakfast by private helicopter and will take to the skies for a scenic flight across the fiords, before landing atop Mount Luxmore on the Kepler Track for a picnic lunch. Guests will then get the chance to explore Fiordland on foot, for an easy-going three-hour downhill walk on the famous track, crossing through alpine terrain and descending into lush rainforest. Upon reaching the shores of Lake Te Anau, guests will take a water taxi across the lake where they will be met by Cabot Lodge staff for the short return drive to lodge. This is a fantastic way to experience Fiordland from the air, water and land all in one day.
Day Two - Guests will begin their second day of adventure with a cruise across Lake Manapouri, before taking a coach over the Wilmot Pass, where Doubtful Sound presents itself in magnificent fashion. Guests will get up close and personal with their remote surroundings, exploring the sheltered coves and shorelines of Doubtful Sound by kayak. Paddling out on the fiord, kayakers will get the chance to view Fiordland’s wildlife, including dolphins, fur seals and occasionally penguins, before enjoying a gourmet picnic lunch surrounded by the sound of waterfalls and native birds. It is only in the vast landscape of Doubtful Sound that guests can truly experience the sound of silence.
