One of the most beautiful places in the world to do paragliding! Instructors are very professional and confident. Thomas, from Denmark, was the best! However, I cannot affirm that GForce has the best service for one reason. An employee, called Donna, responsible for doing the paragliding bookings and getting payments, was really rude with clients. She could not estimate our... More

This is a MUST do in Queenstown! I am not a daredevil and chickened out on the Bungy Jumping on offer but the smooth-talking Shayn had me trusting that jumping off a mountain and floating down to Queenstown would be fine. And it was! This is an amazingly beautiful and peaceful experience. If you ever wondered what it would be... More

If your in Queenstown you should defiantly do this!! A highlight of our holiday, Gforce are a very professional operation. Booking was easy and everything ran smoothly, making for a very enjoyable day. The ride down to Queenstown is one that I'll never forget, a total rush and incredible scenery. They also provide the option to purchase very high quality... More

Whenever I was in Queenstown I would stare up at the people paragliding off the mountain. I always thought it looked beautiful but was always too scared to give it a go (as much as I wanted to). This time I thought I would just suck it up and do it!! Best thing I have ever done, ever!!! My pilot... More

After a day walk on Ben L track I saw people flying, so I tried it. Best feeling amazing view and protectional pilots. You don't need experience after short talk with the pilot in 10 minutes you are in flying. Great videos and photos

Done a lot of extreme things in my time and this would have to be the best thing I've done. Absolutely perfect day and had a legend of a pilot 'Ben' who was totally chilled and a top bloke ! A small price to pay for a life experience . Thank you . Jeremy

Went up the gondola with my partner simply wanting to get the view, but saw these guys paragliding and couldn't resist. Glad I couldn't, as it was one of the best things I've done in a long time. My pilot Shane, was awesome and really informative. He waited til the conditions were perfect to ride and off we went. It... More

Brady and Gav did a fabulous job. I'm scared of heights and they were so patient and reassuring. I flew with Brady and he was a true gentleman, great pilot and demonstrated concern. Hubby loves adventure and Gav took him through the dives and he had a ball! Thanks guys.
