Best way to see Queenstown

The staff were very experienced and helpful. This is a weather dependent activity and they did their best to accommodate that for us. The end result was an awesome flight over Queenstown's forests. We would do it again.

Fantastic experience

My experience with Aerotow Hang Gliding was superb and unforgettable. Ian and John were fantastic - both very professional, informative and respectful and of course super careful and efficient in covering all safety procedures. A wonderful experience!
