  Paragliding Queenstown

Not being one for hard out adventure sports I have to admit that I haven't tried this but I had plenty of fun watching others! Paragliding is a sport whereby you run off a hill/cliff with a parachute on your back and paraglide to the ground.

In Queenstown there is more than one place that offers this however probably the easiest one to access is Queenstown Commercial Parapenters located at the top of the Skyline Gondola. They offer tandem jumps and heli-jumps also.

Equipment: They will supply all the equipment. $185 is the cost and that will get you a tandem jump plus some pictures of the jump.

Directions: Top of the Skyline Gondola
Phone: 0800 SKY OUT
Theme: Extreme Sports
