Definitely a must try activity even thou you are not into extreme activities. No jumping involve goodnews for those who are afraid to jump. It is definitely safe. I was also given a chance to control portion of the flight which is awesome. Plus a great way to see the place. I would definitely do it again!

Scenic ride (on the way to the site and up in the air) and awesome adrenaline-pumping experience! Definitely worth every dollar I paid for :)

My son and I throughly enjoyed the 2000 ft decent into the city below. Our guides were very professional and catered to your desire for excitement. with the guide maneuvering the sail, you are just along for a great ride.

I had the most incredible flight with SkyTrek. My friend and I had paraglided previously and wanted to give hang gliding a go, so we booked a tandem flight that leaves from Glenorchy. All of the operators/staff/pilots are extremely friendly, good communicators and make you feel safe, comfortable and informed about your flight. It was mostly a seamless day. I... More

Hi Stephanie, Thanks for writing an awesome review. Yes, it does take longer for the hang gliding due to it being up at Glenorchy. We quote 2 hours for our winter paragliding trips and 3 hours for the winter hang gliding. All the best, Ian Clark - CEO. More

Hang gliding - Flying is amazing and breathtaking. You got to try it to know it. Give yourself some flexibility as trips can be canceled if conditions are not favorable. Always call to check before leaving your hotel as I made a mistake of not checking and only found out that the trip was canceled when I reached the meeting... More

My glide with SkyTrek was absolutely amazing! I had the pleasure of experiencing my first hang glide ever with one of the Owner/operators Ian Clarke. As a world champion hang glider I knew I was in safe hands with Ian. We drove 45 minutes from Queenstown on a complimentary shuttle out to Glenorchy with breathtaking views the whole way out....

This was such an amazing activity; the Glenorchy scenery was so stunningly beautiful and the activity was exhilarating and exciting! It was a sunny wintry day but Skytrek had everything sorted from balaclavas and sunglasses to toasty warm gloves and jackets. You get to completely relax (in the equivalent to a fully supported horizontal sleeping bag!) and drink in the... More

Blame it on the weather but as bad luck would have it, all flights that morning was cancelled for our prebooked 15000 foot drop free fall sky dive. Sad but still keen to make a trip up into the skies, a timely morning slot was offered by the sky dive operator with their pals at Sky Trek. (It pays to... More
