We had a great time with the team at Coronet Peak. We felt safe the entire time. As someone who does not like heights at all, I couldn't have felt more comfortable. Andres was brilliant and my wife had Tony who she also found amazing. Thanks for the trip guys!

A present from the grown kids...was I brave enough to join them? Just. Lotsa fun, awesome experience gliding above the mountainside. Juan (my guide) was excellent, informative, good on the safety side, focussed on doing what I was happy with. The pick up and drop off worked well, enough guides (pilots?) for a large group (~15 I think), all worked... More

Awesome views of the valley and the remarkables in flight, awesome feeling up in the air and heaps of fun! The pilots were all friendly and highly professional. Flying time was about 10-15 minutes, shorter than I expected but enough time to take in the views and have fun.

Dear Shanthi, I am sorry to hear you were a little disappointed with the length of your hang gliding trip. The time you were given is an average flight time, not an exact flight time. We cannot guarantee any length of time in the air as hang gliders and paragliders do not have a motor attached to them that could... More

Excellent experience! I did my hand gliding with Dany and had a great time. He made me feel at ease and safe as it was my first time but also made it really fun. I would definitely do it again and recommend it to anyone.
