Full Description

What better place to tick paragliding off your bucket list than the postcard-perfect Queenstown?

After meeting the crew at the designated pick up point, you will be transported to Rocky Gully, the highest take-off point in Queenstown, where your pilot will take you through a detailed safety briefing and prepare you for the flight ahead. You will then be harnessed and counted down to take the leap together at a whopping 4,100ft!

Experience an adrenaline rush like no other as you are rewarded with spectacular aerial views of Queenstown and the whole Wakatipu basin. For the serious thrill seekers, you will have the opportunity to enjoy some aerobatic spins and turns in the air before safely floating back down to earth.
