We were picked up by a van and some of the pilots to head to Coronet Peak. Within a few minutes we were set up, walked, ran and flew! You get to steer yourself and end with a corkscrew before landing, 15-20 minutes after take-off. Very relaxed feeling and great views along the way, highly recommend (though very weather dependant, we had to reschedule three times).

The flight was a little bit too short for the price of $189. But friendly staff and people.

What an incredible experience! A beautiful day, wonderful information, smooth handling from hotel to mountain top--an outstanding opportunity! Omar, my pilot, was thorough with his instructions, very competent, and led me through step-by-step every bit of the way, offering me a top 5 life experience. Thank you!

Great to hear, Beth.
I am pleased you enjoyed your flight with Omar. Maybe we take you hang gliding, next time you are in Queenstown.
Safe travels,

A fantastic, phenomenal and exhilarating experience of a lifetime!!

Before this I didn't have the faintest idea of what tandem paragliding really is, until I made the decision to join my friends and just go for it.

Initially, I was pretty nervous at the thought of running off the edge of a cliff. However, I had a very experienced pilot, Keith, who assured me that he'd be in control and all I needed to do was just to follow his instructions. It calmed my nerves down and I took a leap of faith, so to speak and WOW!!

This is one of the best life-changing experience for me ever!!

Way to go. Hip Hip Hooray!.... :)

I would recommend this experience to anyone.

Coronet Peak Tandem Paragliding and Hang gliding responds:

Many thanks for taking the time to review us, W May.
I am thrilled to hear that Keith looked after you well and made sure those nerves didn't interfere in enjoying the experience.
We might see you again next time you are in town.

Had the best time as people were great and knew what they were doing. Every thing was well explained and made you feel at ease. Loved the feeling of being up there and the landing is also one of the best parts, what a rush.
