    Itinerary

    Enjoy a scenic drive up to the Coronet Peak ski field after you get picked up from outside the Cardrona Shop in downtown Queenstown. The transport up to the skifield and return is all included. When you are on take off you will get a full briefing for your paragliding activity. This take off is higher than the regular summer take off and allows for extra swoops and turns during your flight. If you wish to take off from higher but want a gentle scenic flight, this take off is also for you. Breathtaking views over the whole Wakatipu area with Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu, The Remarkables, Arrowtown, the Gibbston Valley of Wines are guaranteed. Coronet Peak is the highest of all the flying sites in Queenstown. Flight times vary, depending on what Mother Nature is providing and are around 10-15 minutes. After your flight you land at the purpose built Flight Park. You will be able to view the fabulous photo and video footage your pilot took of your flight. No obligation to buy. Following that you will be driven back into Queenstown in our free shuttle service. Allow about 2 hours for the round trip.

    What could have been a lot of fun was ultimately ruined by the ‘pilot’ shoving his GoPro selfie stick in my face every few seconds. I couldn’t really take in the flight as I was made to pose for photos and videos for which you are then expected to cough up another $60 at the

    Many thanks for taking the time to leave feedback for us here on Tripadvisor, chile_1234. I am sorry to hear you did not like the pilot taking photos of you during your flight. Pilots do take photos and videos of their clients unless the passengers ask them not to. Most of our clients do want the photo/video evidence of their paragliding or hang gliding experience. After the flight passengers are able to view the footage before deciding whether to purchase it or not, no obligations. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip through New Zealand. Regards, Gitti Tapper
