In spite of the weather (it began to rain not long after we finished), it was an incredible experience to hang glide over a beautiful part of the country. We didn't get very close to the coast / park though because rain was coming in from that direction. EQUIPMENT & SAFETY: They provide a short but thorough safety briefing and... More

Awesome experience of flying like a bird, I could even spot my house from up above. I asked for the most scary stunts possible and Trevor did a few dive which is totally amazing, but I ended up feeling nausea, but totally worth it! I love this more more than sky diving.

Had a wonderful time hang gliding over the fields and taking in the morning sun with Trevor- totally worth doing if you're in the area! You don't get to see Abel Tasman (select the microlight for that) but you do get a good 15 mins (plus or minus depending on the day) of time in the air floating along with... More

I had my first hang gliding experience with SkyAdventures and it couldn't have been better. The owner was super friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I had great weather and the views from the sky were stunning. We didn't really go over Abel Tasman, but that didn't really matter. Soaring through the sky from 2500 meters was amazing. I actually ended up... More

Opted for the microlight flight, and it was one of the highlights of my holiday in New Zealand. Stunning scenery and impeccable service - highly recommended!

Had never tried it before and was very nervous but made it easy and fun. You won't forget the hang gliding at all. We took the Able Tasman scenic tour on The micro lights. It was excellent and the best way to see the park

We did both the hang-gliding and the 30min. microlight (ultralight?) and it was great! It is great to fly in such a small plane or hang bellow a wing felling like a bird. The microlight is the only option to really reach Abel Tasman National Park but the 'standard' package will just fly over sea along the coastline so you... More

Felt surprisingly stable and safe in the air, get great views of the area - could even see sting rays in the water below us. Highly recommended.

It was a relatively short drive from Nelson to get to the airfield, from which we took off in the microlights. Our one hour expedition over and around the Abel Tasman Park was by far the best way to get a feel for the area and take in all of the views - on a limited time schedule. The experience... More
