Queenstown: Summer Tandem Paragliding

1. Queenstown: Summer Tandem Paragliding

There’s no better place to try paragliding than from Coronet peak, the highest of all the flying sites in Queenstown. This take-off gives thrill-seekers the opportunity to experience more spins and turns in the air, but a gentle flight is also possible from this spot. This friendly and highly qualified team is led by Angus Tapper, a 4-time New Zealand Paragliding Champion and runner-up in the 2010 National Hang Gliding championships. He has over 30 years of aviation experience. After a short drive up to the ski field, you’ll be teamed up with your highly experienced pilot. He’ll do a safety briefing with you followed by a short practice. Soon, you and your pilot will be flying away. Once up in the air, you’ll have amazing views of the whole Wakatipu area. There’s nothing better than seeing the spectacular Queenstown region from the air. Once you’re done, a courtesy van will pick you up from the purpose-built landing site, which has a café that offers hot food and drinks.

The entire experience went very smoothly. We were picked up from queenstown after each person was weighed on a scale and assigned with pilots. The view at the starting point is also quite nice. The pilots were friendly and very encouraging. Jan was a great pilot, explained clearly each step and gave me a sense of security during the flight.

It was just amazing! My first time paragliding and I loved it! The team was very friendly and the location soo beautiful! You'll fly over the valleys of Coronet peak with a beautiful view on the Arrowtown valley and Lake Wakatipu in the back. Of course the flight is too short ;-) But my partner did his best to meet optimal wind conditions.

It was exciting, fun and yet so comfortable. Cima the instructor made me feel as I was made for doing it everyday. Pick up amd drop off offered and a must do for all.

Super professional and punctual team. Makes it safe and leaves only space for fun

Awesome is not a word I use often, but this experience really was awesome.
