Tandem Hang gliding or Paragliding is one of the best adventure activities you can experience while visiting Queenstown. You can fly year-round! Bringing you the most incredible flights as the season's change in one of the most scenic places in the world.
There are 2 main spots to paraglide in Queenstown! You can soar above the towns majestic charm from the top of Ben Lomond! Or take the short journey to Coronet Peak, where in Winter you can spend an entire day up to the mountain and top it off by putting your skis or board down and float to the bottom. For the more adventurous you may give your tandem guide permission to really get the adrenaline going, with various twists and spins during your descent.
Flying in a prone position, side by side with one of many highly experienced pilots, you will be harnessed to a modern hang glider where you can feel the thrill of natural flight. The Instructional Hanggliding product is for those that would like to learn a little bit more about hang gliding and have a hands-on experience to fly the glider themselves! Or maybe try AERO-TOW, a specially designed tow plane called a “tug” tows the tandem hang glider into the air until it is borne aloft. Aero-towing is superior to hill launching in that it can take the hang glider as high as desired and can release it at any point.
