Tandem Paragliding

After a few steps down a gentle slope, experience the thrill of paragliding, a must do in Queenstown. You will be harnessed into your comfortable front row seat with your experienced tandem pilot taking the controls. Have an exhilarating joy ride or a relaxed scenic flight.
Our higher take off option is from Rocky Gully. It gives us the opportunity for more aerobatics – more of those spins and turns in the air – for the thrill seekers. If you want a gentle tandem flight but still take off higher, this is also for you.

During the winter months (June – September) the chairlifts allow us access to the snow launch point at the Coronet Peak skifield. The views off the summit are incredible, plus we have 1,100m vertical to play with. This is twice the height of the Queenstown Gondola – and is therefore the finest tandem paragliding experience in Queenstown.

FREE courtesy transport from Queenstown to the flying site and back operates all year round. 

Duration: 2 Hours (approx.)  Location: Queenstown, New Zealand
