What an incredible experience! Have always wanted to do this and was not let down! This one is a definite must do when visiting Queenstown and is far better than the other paragliding offered around the town. Launch site is from the top of Coronet Peak so 3-4 times higher than others and offers amazing views. Pilots are amazing and... More

I did the hang gliding today with SkyTrek in Glenochy. The gliding was wonderful, thus later on I decided pay extra 80 NZD for the photos and few videos. When I went back hotel and check the photos, I was unhappy as the quality of the photos and videos were terrible.......Majority of photo and two videos do not have my... More

We try our best to get the best photo's and video's possible but obviously something went wrong on this occasion.

I was weary of hang gliding with and aero tow, but after doing it, I would definitely do it again! The tow up is Amazing and the glide off Glenarch region is breath-taking. Words can't explain the experience. Worth it! The staff is super nice.

I've gotten to do some pretty amazing things in my life, but this is at the top!!! I've wanted to go Hang Gliding for years and have just kept putting it off for various reasons (not enough time, not enough money, no one to go with, etc.) so when I found out I was going to Queenstown on a business...

Three of us did hang gliding with Skytrek - one adult, a teenager and a 12 year old. We all had a wonderful experience and would recommend it with no hesitation. We also did paragliding over Queenstown but just about preferred hang gliding from Coronet Peak. The feeling of soaring like a bird is a once in a lifetime experience.

We had an amazing time paragliding with SkyTrek. We went in the early afternoon as it was starting to warm up, which meant more warm air & more time in the sky. Great views & there is nothing like flying!
