Fiordland Discovery Package

Two night's accommodation at Fiordland Lodge and one night's accommodation on the Fiordland Discovery 

Day One:

After breakfast a 9am pickup direct off the Fiordland Lodge lawn where you will experience our Doubtful Sound 1 hour Gold Star Helicopter flight combined with a Kepler Track Heli-Hike. You will fly deep into the heart of Fiordland to the spectacular, dramatic Doubtful Sound which is the second largest of New Zealand's fourteen Fiords. This flight includes 2 wilderness landings and includes flying through a hidden valley known as Campbell's Kingdom, a secret spot seen by only a few lucky souls. After climbing back over the main divide your helicopter lands to drop you off at the Luxmore Hut (1085 meters above sea level) ontop of the Kepler Mountains to embark on the second part of your adventure of hiking on the Kepler Track.

The Kepler Track is one of New Zealand's Great Walks and is a well-formed track and very easy to follow. The section you will follow is from the Luxmore Hut - Brod Bay which is 8.2 kilometers long. You will take in incredible views on the open tops before walking 45 minutes to reach the bushline. From the bushline it is all downhill as you climb past the towering limestone bluffs and then into the mountain beech forest. The Kepler track water taxi when you reach Brod Bay will return you across Lake Te Anau where a member of the Fiordland Lodge team will return you to the lodge. Time to sit in the Hot Tubs and ease the muscles with a glass of Central Otago wine and reflect on the day.   

The opportunity is also available for the fit and able from when you get dropped off by the helicopter to climb to the summit (1400 meters) which is from the Luxmore hut a 3 hour return walk which offers unrivalled panaramic views of the mountain landscape as far as the eyes can see. 

Note: This is an unguided walk however should you wish the expertise of a private guide this can also be arranged.          

Day Two:

Spend a night in the 'eighth wonder of the world' on board the stunning Fiordland Jewel. You will be collected from Fiordland Lodge at approximately 12.30pm and transferred through to Milford Sound to connect with the Fiordland Jewel. This is a small group cruise with a maximum of 20 passengers only a night and the Fiordland Jewel features nine climate-controlled cabins all with ensuite bathrooms and majestic fiord and sea views. Onboard enjoy cruising on Milford Sound past Bowen falls,the world-renowned Mitre Peak and weather permitting enjoy kayaking and tender boat explorations.
