Paragliding is an adventurous sport, that gives you the opportunity to fly like a bird and get amazing views of landscape from the sky. You can feel the veil of the clouds embracing your body. You may feel you wanna scream loud "freedom" and hear the echo of your voice. The fresh air is flirting with your face while the adrenaline you feel by being up there makes the mountains, the trees and the stones begging you to take your place on the ground, only for one moment.
- ABOUT THE SPOT
Paragliding in Treble Cone, Wanaka, Otago New Zealand
The town is surrounded by the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Crown Range, Roys Peak, Haast Pass and Pisa Range, and is close to Mount Aspiring National Park (World Heritage Area). Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be continental, with fairly warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 25°C/77°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.
Extreme sport lovers can enjoy paragliding on Treble Cone (the highest tandem paragliding in New Zealand). Take-off from the top of the mountain at an altitude of 2,624 ft/800 m or 3,608 ft/1,100 m and experience the thrill of flying like a bird for about 15-20 min!
You will land on the beautiful Matukituki Valley. Enjoy the breathtaking alpine view and the magnificent waterfalls on your side. Don’t forget to bring the camera with you! Put on warm clothes and closed-toe footwear.
Note: Pick-up from Wanaka can be arranged with operators.
