Wanaka Paragliding Questions & Answers

Cedar Park, Texas

What is the cost? What is the timetable for doing it? I would be a solo person, not with others.

Hi. Sorry for the late answer, I only just saw your question and I know it's probably too late for you now but let me answer as best as I can.

We charge $209 for morning flights, if you can drive out to the bottom of the mountain we fly at which is called Treble Cone. 20km from Wanaka town.

We meet you there and after outfitting you with helmet and gloves we take you up to takeoff at 1100m (3608 ft) in our van.

  Your pilot briefs you, you take off, fly past some nice waterfalls and land by your car.

We think the flight is rather special and most people agree with us.

If you don't have a car we can pick up in town for an extra $30.

If you want to fly in the afternoon we charge an extra $10 so it's $219 plus transport if you need it. This is because afternoon flights are cancelled more often because the wind increases over our safety limit.

Paragliding is very weather dependant.

So we charge a little more to gently encourage bookings at a reliable time.

However on the right day we can fly right into the evening hours.

If you like photos and video of your flight our pilots all have GoPro cameras and can put them on an SD card to take away. This is an extra $60 and we're happy to shoot and you look at the bottom and decide if you want them. No worries if you don't.

You can book online through our website and we have online places available nearly every day at 9,10,11,12,13 &14:00pm.

You can also book by email or simply call us on the day you want to fly.

We have a free phone number and usually have spare places especially just for one.

Okay, that's it. Sorry to be so late with my response but I hope I've answered your questions and that we can take you flying one day at Treble Cone.
