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!

We did tandem hangliding. Morning of was cloudy and overcast but they said it was ok to go up. When we got to the carpark at coronet peak there were some clouds. We were the second group to go - but the time it was our turn most of the clouds have cleared up. The first group flies off...then the... More

Our experience had been wonderful. We were told what to do and we waited for wind to blow and took off. Very pleasurable. We found utmost care taken. First day the wind was heavy so we returned. We were accommodated the next day. All went peaceful. Thank you. My special thanks to Jim Rooney my guide.

At the tender age of 65, with a bumpy start, dragging my pilot in tow we ran over the cliff of Coronet Peak and soared into the majesti big blue beyond, I experienced an amazing and exhilarating ride.Holding onto the camera, and filming your own glide, as well as steering the controls was such a buzz. A couple of aerobatic... More

Our whanau consisting of 2 grandmothers, parents, a 21 and 17 year old daughter (with special needs) and our 16 year old son para-glided and hang-glided with skytrek. We loved the experience and though we had to wait until the fog/mist/cloud made it safe for us to depart, the anticipation increased our adrenaline, curiosity and determination, to run off a...

I am fully aware that this is an extreme sport and accidents happen , and that I signed a waiver, but ..... We went up to Coronet Peak, several others including my mate on another Skytrek flight all took off without incident, my flight was not to be. We had a spectacular crash during takeoff and tumbled for some distance... More

1. We decided to go with SkyTrek as we were promised a minimum of 15 mins to a maximum of 20 mins paragliding at Coronet Peak. However the actual 'in air' time was for 10 minutes only. The 'trick' SkyTrek' pilots employ is that after 10 mins or so they ask if you are interested is some aerobatics. They do... More
