What to Expect
Take to the air in Queenstown! Embark on a trip with the most experienced tandem paragliding and hang gliding company around! You'll take off from Coronet Peak, the highest commercial take-off point for Queenstown paragliding activities. You're guaranteed an adrenaline rush!
From start to finish, you'll be in completely safe and experienced hands. Your friendly and highly qualified team leader is a 4 times New Zealand Paragliding Champion!
During winter (June - September), you'll access the 5,400ft snow launch via a chairlift. As you travel up, enjoy some stunning views out over the snow.
And it doesn't stop there! The views you'll take in off the summit are incredible. You've got a lot of hight to play with from up here, meaning a seriously exciting flight. The summit measures 1,100m vertical, which is twice the height of the Queenstown gondola!
You'll soar down over these incredible views after you take off. This is the paragliding experience of a lifetime! You'll be airborne for 15-20 mins.
After your flight, photos and videos are available to purchase. Speak to your pilot about this - they're a great memory and something to show your friends.

We fly from the highest take off point in Queenstown, Coronet Peak. The average flight time in summer on the parglider is 12-15 mins, on the hang glider 10-12 mins. For our winter tandem flights off the summit of Coronet Peak we are averaging 15-20 mins. We rely on mother nature, so it can vary quite a bit, sometimes the flights are longer than the average, sometimes a bit shorter.
