Paragliding & Hang Gliding Tours


New Zealand Paragliding Tours

Tours are organized from November to April, when flying conditions are at their best. We will pick you up at the Queenstown International Airport. Queenstown will be our base for the 14-day tour. We will spend most of our time thermaling and soaring in the Queenstown area, over the southern lakes. The views over Wakatipu basin are overwhelming. Paragliding & Hang Gliding Tours, Queenstown, New Zealand
The beautiful alpine resort of Queenstown and its surrounding mountains have tremendous potential for cross country flying. Enjoy a fun relaxed atmosphere with experienced instructors, who will take you to some of the most spectacular sites in New Zealand.
We have 15 of the best flying sites in the country, all within one hour of Queenstown. If the weather is bad, we can always fly somewhere, from Dunedin to Christchurch, or through Central Otago, within 2 to 3 hours drive from Queenstown. We will go where the weather is good for flying. If you can't fly on one of the days, we guarantee you that we will arrange something every day that you will remember for the rest of your life.
Pilots of all levels can enjoy this tour, We have experienced instructors who will be looking after you and picking the best sites for the day. Our tour guides are all instructors, with years of experience at all of the sites.
This tour is not just for pilots, if you have a friend or partner who does not fly, don't worry, we can fly them tandem for the tour. With one of our friendly tandem pilots it is the same price and no experience is necessary. If you don't want to fly every day, we can arrange other activities. Queenstown is rightly known as the Adventure Capital of the world. Check out www.itag.co.nz.
Each tour is limited to 14 pilots. Reserve your spot on the tour while spaces are available. Special tours for smaller groups can be arranged at any time. Paragliding & Hang Gliding Tours, Queenstown, New Zealand
