Why fly with Glide Queenstown?

Glide Queenstown (formerly Coronet Peak Tandems) is the most experienced dual tandem paragliding and tandem hang gliding Company in Queenstown – in fact within NZ. We have flown more tandems at Coronet Peak than any other Company.

The Glide Queenstown team is highly experienced, fronted by a 4 times NZ Paragliding champion.

Our take offs at the Coronet Peak skifield are only a short drive out of town. We offer a FREE shuttle service from Queenstown to Coronet Peak and return. It departs from outside the Ivan Clarke Gallery, 39 Camp Street in Queenstown. Bring a friend along to watch. Most of the time we do have space in one of our comfortable, modern vehicles . There is a small fee for spectators to come along.

Glide Queenstown flies from the highest commercial take offs points for Queenstown Paragliding and Hang Gliding activities. For Paragliding you can choose between our Main Take off (3800ft) and the Higher Take off (4100ft) at Coronet Peak in Summer. In Winter we take off from even higher at 5400ft (more than twice the height of the Gondola in Queenstown).  The Hang gliding departs from the Main Take off (3800ft) only.

Glide Queenstown offers you both Paragliding and Hang Gliding in Queenstown. The choice is yours! For those of you who would like to try both, we have got a Combo option available..
