Beautiful and exciting

A great way to see the mountains without being inside an aeroplane. Peaceful and relaxing the first half of the glide is. You can ask for them to do flips and tricks at the end to make it more exciting than skydiving.

Awesome experience for the whole family

I have done paragliding from Queenstown many years ago, but wanted more of a challenge, this ticked all the boxes. The paragliding team are fabulous and a great bunch of guys. Would definitely recommend doing paragliding from Coronet Peak rather than in Queenstown above the gondola. The flight time is waaaaay longer, views are spectacular and the instructors were great. Thank you to Jack, who talked me through everything..many thanks. My partner and children really loved the experience and are very keen to do it again.

Indescribably cool experience!

We had such an incredible time paragliding - our first booking had to be pushed back a couple days due to the wind, but it was so worth it. We had absolutely spectacular views and the flight itself was breathtaking. Highly, highly recommend!
