Fantastic tandem hang gliding experience above Abel Tasman. I could see Kaikoura mountains to Farewell Spit. Cool and friendly pilot and team, and a chance to fly it as well.

One of the major highlights of a 3 month tour of NZ.
Considering that I don't have a head for heights this was an exhilerating experience. The run-up to the flight (pick-up, registration, outfitting) was all so low key and friendly that I felt totally comfortable. That little machine that was to take me up look fragile yet reliable on the ground and when i was up in the air I felt totally secure. The most stunning sight was seeing my shadow on a cloud a few hundred feet below me surrounded by a complete circular rainbow. A memory for me to keep for the rest of my life.
I'll do it again, next time I'm in NZ.
Do it - you'll regret it otherwise.

Microlight flying. Very fun. Amazing views. The water below you is so clear you can see stingrays and seals below you.

Great experience! Did the microlight flight over Abel Tasman. Great way to see the sights... being out in the elements. Everybody was super friendly and you could tell the pilot enjoyed his job. Definitely worth it and would highly recommend.

Very friendly, they take the time you need and on the way they explain the things you see. Take the Abel Tasman tour of 30 min. That's enough time to see the great coastline.

Both my husband and I experienced tandem hand gliding and had a fab time. The whole experience was really easy and the staff were very friendly and confident. Very worthwhile for the amazing views alone!

Hang gliding for everyone including people with disabilities.My wife has wanted to hang glide for some time, but most hang gliders involve running and jumping off a cliff,and due to numerous broken bones she is unable to do that. By being Areo towed up and then released,she was able to hang glide.Also she doesnt like hights and the Aero tow up gets over that hurdle.The take off and landing are smooth, and you have complete confidence in the staff,who are very friendly and put you at ease. The experience was amazing, with the instructor doing stunts, and even allowing you to have a go at flying the hang glider.The views from that hight are fantastic and we both cant wait to hang glide again. The DVD is well wort buying as you can relive it again and it shows your friends how high you have been and the extreme stunts (if you are up to it) they do. A must do experience!
