Excellent experience, this morning my partner did the tandem paraglide and I was a spectator. You are in the air 15-20 mins, taking off in the snow, very knowledgeable and experienced pilots my partner felt completely safe, well organised with a pick from Queenstown CBD. The photos and videos taken by the pilot were great. Highly recommend.

This was something I’d wanted to do for ages and I’m so glad I did it . Jumping off coronet peak was awesome and the glide down was about 25mins as caught loads of currents to fly. It was incredible. My pilot was awesome and I loved every minute of it. So glad I did it . My son jumped off just before me and he chose to do the aerobatics which was super cool to watch also. We both loved it .

Great, Nikki. I am glad you and your son enjoyed your paragliding experience with us. Summer is a great time to come flying with all the thermal updraft we are getting. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in our beautiful little town. Regards, Gitti Tapper Coronet Peak Tandems

What an awesome experience taking off over the snow from Coronet Peak was amazing. The highest takeoff in Queenstown we were recommended this from another couple and so glad we listened. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking to do something different.

Fantastic - a one word review. Now filling in the rest of the review …. We went from the top of Greengates chairlift down over the ski field and broke through the cloud just at ski field height. Did some tight turns and landed. Fantastic
