One of the definite must dos if you are in Queenstown and enjoy a bit of exhilaration. Due to wind conditions our location was changed from the Gondola to the Coronet peaks. My instructor George was amazing and made me feel really comfortable. I was not scared but wanted to feel how it felt like flying like an eagle and... More

My husband and I had the chance to go paragliding during our stay in Queenstown. It was just the best thing EVER!!! The weather wasnt ideal so i would highly recommand to book this activity early in your stay as we got delayed through the week. Both our french pilots were very professional and made the whole experience a bliss.... More

Yes, Gavin was my coach and partner on the tandem GForce Paraglide ride. He was totally professional --- told me exactly what to do --- run full speed off the cliff! We had a perfect 10 for take off. While increased winds (which, as a sailor were comfortable for me) kept us aloft for an amazing ride over Queenstown's spectacular... More

That was my first time paragliding. Everything is smoothed from check-in to riding. Staffs are very attentive and the pilot is professional, very good at instruction and gliding. I recommend everyone to try it when you are in Queensland. It would be your unforgettable experience.

We flied today with GForce and we were glad we did. The coaches are super friendly and professional - they tell u exactly what u need to do, and they guide you gently upon departure. When we were in the sky, my coach kept communicating with me about what I like and what I do not like; the height, the... More

It was not in my vacation plan, but when I saw other people paragliding I said to myself, "Flora it's now or never". Dan of GForce Paragliding was very informative and transmitted safety. Great experience, I loved it!

What can one say, from the moment you get onto the chair lift until the moment you touch down it is a thrill ride. The guys at Gfrorce were great and explained every step of the experience and made you feel safe and comfortable.. Would highly recommend the experience and have no hesitation in doing it again

I had the time of my life up in the air. The views were superb and the feeling of zipping through the air was super exhilarating. Brady was a great pilot, super patient, friendly and informative. We had a bit of a wait at the top of the hill for the wind to be coming in the right direction, but... More

I went up the gondola and wasn't thinking of doing the paragliding but went over to make some enquiries anyway and decided on the spot to do it. I was introduced to my pilot, Clem. We went up the luge chairlifts and then walked about ten minutes up to the takeoff spot. With the wind a bit weak, we tried... More
