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

Booked a paragliding experience for myself, and met up at the Skytrek office in QT. They quickly put you in a van and take you up to Coronet Peak ski resort for the glide! It was definately an unforgettable experience, but I felt there's a lack of them telling you what's going on until you're up on the mountain, ready... More

We checked-in and were picked up from outside the SkyTrek office and taken to Gelnorchy Airfield about 45 minutes from Queenstown. We were harnessed up and strapped in to our respective gliders with pilots, and then towed up to 2,500ft by an ultralight plane. Magnificent scenery of the lake and surrounding mountains, and gliding through the air was such a... More

I went along with my family to watch them hang glide, but by the end had to try it myself. I am glad I did, it was truly an unforgettable experience. The scenery is one of a kind and feeling of flying,amazing. Ian and his team are professional and make sure from start to finish you have a wonderful time.

Let me tell you one thing...I am really scared of heights! The sight of looking down from high places send my knees to wobble like jelly, tummy churned with butterflies and sick feeling and worst scenario, I have to squat down to calm myself. So...soaring above the sky...well you could imagine how I would react to that, right?! BUT I... More
