Being a local I can't believe I have never done this before. Flying from Heidis Hut over Coronet towards Arrowtown. Just unreal. We live in the most beautiful place. Pilots were really fun and everything went like clockwork. Never would have done it but my Brother made me!

The guides at sky trek are very friendly and reassuring to anyone who may have fears. All of the guides are very experienced and engaging. A great day out I would recommend it to people of all age groups as there is something in it for everyone.

I am a 14 year old boy from Australia. I had always wanted to go hang gliding. I thought Sky Trek was the perfect company to fly with. The staff were all really friendly and I had a great time. Thank you Sky Trek for this amazing experience.

My partner and I decided to paraglide with this company over Coronet Peak. Spectacular views and fantastic guides accompanied both of us. Staff are warm and highly professional, which was comforting considering that I was quite anxious prior to the experience. The entire activity takes only 1.5 hours, but the thrill is certainly worth it and is especially easy for... More

We were 'that family', we some how mixed up the start time and arrived at the ticketing office just as they were about to advise our cancellation. Instead, the office manager threw us in a van and raced us to the summit. We quickly got two of our family onto a flight each, with the remaining two scheduled for the... More

I and my wife did tandem paragliding recently on our honeymoon in New Zealand. The overall experience was superb and the staff was very helpful. The trainers who paraglided with us were great and were always up to crack jokes. The jumping site is very scenic and the camera used to take videos and pictures gave some excellent shots. Overall...

This was a gift from my boyfriend for Christmas. I was a bit unsure at first as I'm not a fan of heights, however this was a wonderful experience. I enjoyed every second of it, fantastic views and great feeling while gliding! I've lived in Queenstown for over a year now and this has been my favourite activity to date!... More
