I never thought I’d ever do something like run off the edge of a mountain but these guys made the experience just absolutely awesome. From the moment I booked, Richard kept me informed about the forecast conditions and I was completely assured that safety and ensuring I had the best experience was top priority. Both Richard and my pilot Brook were so friendly and down to earth, with great recommendations for the rest of my time in Wanaka too! The actual flight was nothing short of awesome. You get a view of the lake unlike anything else, as well as the thrill of being so close to the mountains and waterfalls, and getting a decent peek at local wildlife. I was super nervous but the team made me feel comfortable and excited, and it’s definitely the highlight of my time in Wanaka. An absolute must if you’re there.

I'd always wanted to try paragliding and my 10 year old daughter got birthday money so this was a very special birthday treat. The drive out to Treble Cone was spectacular. The team were excellent, professional and put us at ease. The location is great. I'd briefly considered doing it in Queenstown but having now seen the site was so glad I chose Wanaka instead. If you get the chance take it.

Had an absolutely amazing experience today with the most amazing, friendly instructors. Thought I was going to be scared but was the most peaceful beautiful experience ever! I felt like a bird! Was really smooth and comfortable and even got to do some sick turns and drops when asked if I was keen, what a thrill! Highly recommend is well worth the experience!
