Had the best time paragliding with the boys from skytrek! Thanks to Pete for being a cool instructor and capturing some cool video moments! This was such a cool experience, calm and relaxing! You can also choose to do some ‘tricks’ in the air if your up to it!!

I have just spent the most amazing time of my life when I ran off Coronet Peak with Vicki and we floated through the sky. Words can not describe the exhilarating feeling of paragliding. I am hooked thanks to Vicki and the amazing time we spent together. Just do it.

This was an awesome experience. Great views, extremely well organised and reasonably priced. I felt very relaxed with Vicki and she was very friendly and welcoming meaning I could appreciate the stunning views. I was even allowed to take control. I would highly recommend this activity if you’re in Queenstown. Jack.
