Paragliding, Hang gliding, and Parapenting, Queenstown: 6 reviews and 4 photos
As a birthday present I got a tandem parapente over Queenstown.
Firstly we took a ride up the Skyline Gondola, then about a 10 minute walk up the hill to the take-off area. The run up is pretty darn scary. You have to run as fast as you can towards the edge of the cliff. Your brain plays tricks on you at this points and tells your legs to stop working!!
Once airborne, it was a great experience. it was so peaceful soaring over Queenstown like a bird. That was until my instructor took us into a vertical spiral!!
I had so much adrenaline running through me once we landed. Then my 'friends' decided to put me through more pain and took me jetboating.
Directions: Various operators and locations.
