Overview
Soar above Queenstown on a hang gliding adventure from the Coronet Peak ski field. Available during summer months (September to April), this tandem hang gliding tour takes off from the area’s highest commercial flight site. Pair up with a qualified guide — a New Zealand paragliding champion — and enjoy a stunning and scenic flight. Round-trip transport is included with your 2-hour experience.
What to Expect
Transfers from Queenstown are included to the Cornet Peak ski-field and trips depart throughout the day. After a short drive up to the ski-field, you get partnered up with your pilot. He will do a safety brief as well as some practice with you before launching. Soon you will be flying away, cruising through 700m vertical and a distance of approximately 4kms.

After this incredible experience the courtesy van will pick you up from the purpose built landing site, which has got a cafe with hot food and drinks. What are you waiting for? There is no better place to experience hang gliding!

You think you can fly

Well, I loved the hanggliding experience. For sure I felt like the instruction could have been longer but in the end it was enough and you knew all you had to know for the takeoff and the glide. The hanggliding itself was incredible and my...More
