Paragliding off Coronet's Peak was a fantastic experience - the guides were very personable and laid back. We were able to fly the glider on our own for a bit, then the guide took over and did some aerial acrobatics. So fun!

Wow, wonderful experience, I felt like an eagle. Three generations in the sky together - my daughter, granddaughter, daughter-in-law and ME in my 70's. SkyTrek so safety conscious and the guides so helpful. Made me feel as if I was the only person to paraglide.

Hi. Sorry for the slow reply on this one. We don't have a minimum age restriction but generally advise that age 8 or above depending on the child is advisable. Having said that, I flew my son at age 6 and he loved it.
