I did the Tandem Paraglide, and it was the best ever! The view from up there is amazing! You can choose if you wanna have it relaxed or exciting, and I chose exciting. It was so much fun! Jim was the best guide ever and the whole crew is just relaxed! Thanks guys for this unforgettable experience!

Initially paragliding wasn't something that was at all on my radar. A friend was adamant we try it and it was quite honestly the best decision made that weekend! We opted to do the Coronet View launch site as it was higher and allowed for more time in the air. The pickup site was easy to find and the short... More

Absolutely spectacular experience, and very professional. But $65 extra for the video and photos was too much, and doesn't really capture the feeling at all. Even the thrilling and gut-wrenching stunts, with me holding the selfie stick, didn't look very exciting on the video, and the only clue was me screaming my head off. It was also not helpful that...

Had my first experience of paragliding and it was fantastic. Roland was my guide and he was extremely knowledgable and made me feel completely safe and at ease. Would highly recommend this experience to anybody even those scared of heights it was so worthwhile doing and would do it again

For all terrified of heights like me; you CAN do it!! I promise. We booked through Happy Travels in Queenstown (highly recommend) if you book a few things together they can work out a discount! The Skytrek crew were awesome! So friendly and definitely got rid of the nerves. I flew with Augusto who had over 25 years experience. I... More

Great experience, you start in town and get in the SkyTrek van with the super friendly drivers. From there you hard up to the stunning Coronet peak, passing through some beautiful country side on the way to the launching pad. At the is point there is no mucking around, it's straight out of the van, each guest assigned to a... More

I had an absolute BLAST. These guys are professional and fun, telling you some cool facts along the drive to the launching area. I hang-glided with Wolfie. He was awesome! As were all the other guides. He is an exceptionally experienced glider and gave very clear instructions to help us launch. I had never done it before but was surprised... More

Had such an amazing experience hang gliding with these guy's! I was surprised by how nervous I was but my pilot completely reassured me and made me feel 100% confident that I was in safe hands. Have done both paragliding (also with Skytrek and also amazing!) and hang gliding and although I'm not sure which is my favourite I loved... More

My guide Andrea took perfect care of me and patiently explained the procedure, then really made sure I had no questions left and took me for the most spectacular flight off Coronet Peak! It really felt like flying as a bird, I never had such an indescribable feeling! For the end of the flight he prove his sound skill by... More
