Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: We love to fly at Treble Cone. It’s 19km from Wanaka township. We’ll meet you at the bottom of the mountain then take you up to takeoff at 1100m (3608 ft) in our van. You’ll fly right by some spectacular waterfalls and land beside your car. We think the flight is rather special and most people agree with us. We charge $209 for morning flights, in the afternoon we charge an extra $20, as afternoon flights are sometimes cancelled if wind increases over our safety limit. Paragliding is very weather dependant. So we charge a little more to encourage bookings at a reliable time. However on many days we can fly right into the evening hours. No car? We can pick up $40. Your pilots has a GoPro camera and will shoot photos and video for you. Look at the bottom and decide if you want them. No worries if you don't. You can book online through our website, we fly hourly from 9 AM. You can also book by email or simply call us on the day. We hope that we can take you flying one day at Treble Cone.

I've been parasailing, skydiving, hot air ballooning, bungee jumping, and now paragliding. This was by far my favourite faux-flying experience. It was a gorgeous, calm, and surreal way to see the beauty of New Zealand. The operating agency was very thorough, and my pilot was good (though very stoic). Highly recommended.

My wife and I flew with Chris and Thomas earlier this week, and absolutely loved the experience. In fact, we both agreed that this was our favorite activity of our 2-week trip in NZ!!

The Treble Cone launch area is stunning, with views of Lake Wanaka and the surrounding mountains from the top. The pilots are extremely professional and emphasize safety, yet they are also passionate about flying and are eager to share that passion with their tandem rider. On the way down we did several passes in front of a waterfall that was coming down the mountain, and even caught a thermal or two that gave us some extra air time!

Hi Chris, thank you very much for your review. I'm delighted this was your favourite NZ activity. The waterfalls are my own favourite place to fly and I'm pleased the thermals were working for you.
