Full description
Enjoy a thrilling day out with the most experienced paragliding team in New Zealand.  At 1,100 vertical meters, it is the highest of the flying sites in New Zealand, more than twice the height of the Gondola in Queenstown. This flight option, the instructional paraglide, is for those that want to learn more about paragliding and actually want to have a go at steering a glider under the guidance of a highly experienced pilot (conditions permitting).  If you choose the option to meet the team at Coronet Peak, an optional free transfer will be provided from downtown Queenstown up to the Coronet Peak ski field. Your pilot will lead a safety briefing with you and then after a short practice, you will be away flying with your highly qualified pilot. Enjoy amazing views of the whole Wakatipu area.
