An impulse adventure, I couldn't be more thrilled! My guide was so friendly and comforting (those nerves were getting to me!) and made sure I saw the best of Queenstown in the sweetest ride possible, complete with epic photos and videos to commemorate the adventure!

We got perfect conditions and beautiful weather. It was a fantastic experience. Only downside to this was that we wasn't allowed to bring our own camera and take pictures. We could buy a video for 50 dollars afterwards. We said no thanks.

We were in Queenstown for a full day and paragliding is something my wife has always wanted to do. She hesitated for some time and eventually took the plunge and walked into the office and made the commitment. The day was perfect for it. The staff were friendly and arranged a driver to take us out to the mountain -... More

I did a bit of everything while in Queenstown, white water rafting, jet boating, ziplining, Etc. And while I would recommend any of them, if you had to do just one, this is it. Panoramic views of the valley and mountains and about 15 minutes of total air time. Very easy to do with a very knowledgeable and friendly staff.... More

I arrived in Queenstown with a plan for all of my days except the day I arrived. I called SkyTrek and they were able to get me in that day and holy cow, was it AWESOME! I originally wanted to do a Hang Gliding trek, but alas, was a little too "well rested" for the weight limits. I was only... More

Great team, very professional, I had so much fun doing this but about 10 seconds before my landing I had to vomit from all the spinning that made me dizzy. probably wouldn't do it again, but would definitely recommend to anyone who doesn't get motion sickness!

What can we say....! After a false start the first day due weather, we the crew were very accomodating in helping us get our flight the next day...and what a glorious day it turned out to be! Despite being one pilot short for the day, the whole team went out of their way to fit everyone's flights in, whilst still... More

I absolutely loved the flight! Just a shout out to Andrea and Dave because they are THE BEST hang gliding pilots! I, of course, was nervous at the thought of flying over a mountainside, but all the pilots were super friendly and hilarious, which made the drive to Coronet Peak enjoyable. Because I was laughing so much, I forgot how... More
