Departing our Te Anau base we leave the shores Lake Te Anau and fly over the Waiau River, which along its shores sits the Kepler Track, one of New Zealand’s famous Great Walks. Lake Manapouri will appear as we head for stunning Nor West Lakes for a beautiful scenic landing opportunity.
You’ll soon see why it’s no wonder Fiordland was a key region for filming the landscapes of Middle-Earth. Once airborne again we fly over Borland Road leading to Green Lake before the flight path takes you over a geological marvel, Mt Titiroa, which, from a distance, looks capped in snow. We will make a landing here so you can get a closeup view of the magnificent and unique huge white granite formations and small lakes that are visible from the air.
