Tandem Paragliding Experience - Queenstown


  • Fly with a professional tandem paragliding pilot from New Zealand's highest commercial launch
  • Enjoy a true bird's-eye view of the pristine mountains and winding rivers
  • The closest experience to flying like a bird

Ready to soar above some of New Zealand's most pristine landscape? Find out what it's like to spread your wings and soar with the birds in the unique New Zealand alpine environment. For 10 to 20 minutes you and a certified paragliding pilot will be looking down on Queenstown from incredible heights.

What's Included?

  • 10 - 20 minute tandem paragliding flight
  • Free return transport

Soar above mountain ridges and get a bird's-eye view of Queenstown and its magnificent surroundings during this tandem paragliding experience from New Zealand's highest commercial launch site. Begin with a quick briefing and before you know it you'll take a few quick steps and be lifted into the sky with your highly trained and professional pilot. Gently glide down to the valley floor or ask your pilot for the "roller coaster ride", a thrilling and high G descent that will leave you breathless. Flight time is between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on the season and weather, so you will have plenty of time to take in the amazing views. With courtesy transport from Queenstown, in no time at all, you'll look down on Queenstown's dramatic landscape of pristine mountains and winding rivers.
