My pattner loves anything to do with flying so after we had taken the gondala up the mountain and he saw the guys paragliding he was on a misision to find them..just outside the cafe they have a little booth (office) where you can pay and head off with one of the guys to do the tandem paraglide.. Beautiful views, well organised and a wondreful experience.

My 13yo son and I took seperate flights over Queenstown on a beautiful clear day with little wind. My first paraglide was in Jan this year at Meribel (France) and this flight was every bit as spectacular as the first. My pilot gave me a demonstration of what the wing can do, despite being a 'bus', as he described it! We both had a fantastic flight, great scenery, both pilots were chatty and described things as we went along. We landed safely near the school and the longest wait of the day was the ride back up the gondolier, we just happened to walk in after a bloody great tourist bus pulled in and unloaded. We both felt quite safe the whole trip and even when the wing was tipped on its side a few times we enjoyed the rush. Worth the money? Where else can you get such a rush, such scenery, such a different experience and all without a noisy engine!

What a fantastic experience we had with Gforce! I was showing my friend from America around when we made the split second decision to paraglide down instead of taking the gondola! I highly recommend them! Our guides Tim and Brady were awesome. We were super nervous but they were very friendly and easy going which made trusting them alot easier! So glad I did it! I felt very safe and had a blast! I am still buzzing 2 days later! We are stoked with our photos and video. We've done a few activities now and these photos are the best we have received yet! Do it! You won't regret it!
