“Soaring on the south island”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Awesome experience with a fantastically experienced and friendly team. We called in on the off chance as we passed their launch spot and they managed to squeeze us in. Thanks guys, an experience to treasure.

Reviewed December 21, 2013 via mobile

Paragliding in Wanaka was an amazing experience. Much more relaxing then we thought it would be and the views are the best around. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the recommendation. We love flying with the hawks too. It's only during the nesting season when they'll come in so close, so we were lucky.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Absolutely fantastic. This trip was the defining experience of our time in Wanaka. We did this on the last day and it was superb. Not only was the flight exciting, scenic and lengthy; but the drive too and from was beautiful as well. As to the staff... well they really could not have been better. I highly recommend this to anyone who is traveling to the Wanaka or Queenstown area, in fact I recommend it to anyone who is traveling to New Zealand like us. Thanks Richard and the team at Wanaka paragliding we had a great time.

“Chasing the eagles”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Me and my girlfriend spent winter season in Wanaka and we finished it up with tandem flight with Richard. If was absolutely amazing. We have been hanging around the waterfall in the air, looking for eagles. Richard is such a friendly guy and will put you at ease from the very first moment you sit in his classy van :)
