Come tandem hang gliding or paragliding with the company that pioneered this adventure sport in New Zealand!
Tandem hang gliding or paragliding is one of the best adventure activities you can experience while visiting Queenstown. Feel the thrill of soaring gracefully through the sky as you get truly epic views of one of the most scenic places in the world.
In summer you can choose to either hang glide or paraglide from the top of Coronet's Peak, New Zealand's highest commercial launch site. You'll fly for up to 20 minutes and there are multiple departure times throughout the day. In winter, you can choose to paraglide from the top of Coronet Peak ski field. Or choose an aero-tow hang glide and fly over Central Otago for up to 20 minutes, available all-year round.
