WHAT TO EXPECT

 

Learn two extreme sports in one day on our paragliding and hang gliding combo tour!

 

  • What’s the difference between them?

 

  • Paragliding is when you sit in a “seat” or harness and control the wing via suspension lines. In other words,  you don’t have any rigid structure to hold on to.

 

  • Hang gliding is where you “hang” from a rigid frame. This means that instead of sitting, you’re now in a face down position.   

 

With paragliding and hang gliding, you use wind currents to change direction. Depending on the weather conditions, your flight can reach a height of 3,800ft – just imagine those views!

 

  • More than 30 years of experience

 

We are the most experienced hang gliding and paragliding company in Queenstown. Our owner and chief pilot, Angus Tapper, has more than 30 years of experience in the aviation industry. He is 4 times New Zealand champion, runner-up New Zealand Hang Gliding Champs 2010 and ranked as 8th in the world in 2001.

 

  • Safety first

 

Along with our extensive experience, our team is highly qualified and your safety is our priority. We will give you the necessary safety training. All you need to do is relax and enjoy the flight!

 

  • Fly from the highest commercial take-off point in Queenstown

 

We take off from Coronet Peak which is the highest commercial take-off point in Queenstown. You’ll be able to see beautiful Lake Wakatipu, New Zealand’s longest lake, and also the smaller Lake Hayes.

Sneakers or other sensible footwear, warm clothes (it can get chilly up there) and your sense of adventure!

We fly from the highest take off point in Queenstown, Coronet Peak. Average flight time on the paraglider is 12-15 mins, on the hang glider 10-12 mins. We rely on mother nature, so it can vary quite a bit, sometimes the flights are longer than the average, sometimes a bit shorter.

Yes. The minimum weight for a passenger on a paraglider is 20 kg, the maximum is 110 kg. For hang gliding, the minimum weight we can carry is 20 kg and the maximum is 90 kg.(Conditions apply)

We provide free transport from Queenstown to take off and back.

The tour starts and ends at the Kiwi Discovery Shop, 37 Camp Street, Queenstown. 

As our activities are weather dependent, we would recommend to book your paragliding/hang gliding experience earlier during your stay in Queenstown rather than later. That way you have got a greater chance of flying.

We’d love you to bring a friend along to watch as long as we have got room in the van. There is a small charge of NZ$20 per spectators.

Time of departure varies with the time of the year and weather. We'll send you further details about the exact time of departure once you fulfilled the booking.

Yes. Photos and videos are available. Ask your instructor about the possibility at the start of the tour. 

It is a no go for cameras for the hang gliding, I am afraid. You can bring your little action camera on your paragliding flight as long as it is mounted on a chest or wristharness. Big SLR cameras are a no go as well.
