Was absolutely awesome! Took my kids Paragliding off Coronet Peak, they landed with huge smiles and they couldn't stop talking about it. Truly professional and very friendly and also very good with the camera. Got amazing videos and photos from the flights. Thank you!!!

Having previously experienced Hang gliding with Sky Trek, I was back to try the Paragliding and it was AMAZING! The scenery and taking off at the top of Coronet peak made it that bit more special. I wanted the Spins and Spirals on the way down and it was like free falling. I was told by the instructor that it... More

The experience begins at Glen Orchy where the Hang Glider is towed up by a micro light till you reach 2500 feet, then you are released. Outstanding scenery combined by an exhilarating flight. An extremely well organised and professional team make sure you have a wonderful time. I want another go!

Absolutely loved my paraglide off Coronet Peak - the views are just breathtaking and the ride was so much fun! Taking off in the snow just makes the experience. Felt super safe the whole time and the spins & spirals were awesome. Make sure you get the photos & video!!

I did my first ever paraglide with SkyTrek in July from the top of coronet peak, it was such an amazing experience that I just HAD to go hand gliding with them!!! I can't decide which I enjoyed more, as they were such unique and unbelievable experiences! The scenery at both coronet peak and Glenorchy was beautiful, and the pictures... More

A must do in Queenstown!! Skytrek was a fantastic experience when I visited Queenie. It offers unparalleled views over Coronet Peak ski field and an extremely comfortable and a surprisingly relaxing experience. Gliding silently for 20minutes, taking plenty of pictures to show to your friends I was given a full commentary of the area. Very informative!! Highlight was the option... More

Very cool time, given to me as a birthday present. On four days flying was cancelled due to weather, but it is winter in the mountains it happens. Each time they were more than happy to refund or rebook, great communication. The drive out to the airfield was spectacular and covered a quick theory lesson and what we were about... More
