Without doubt, Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world boasting striking mountains, a long stretch of the Atlantic Ocean coastline and an intriguing working harbour. Located at the shores of Table Bay in the Western Cape province of South Africa, it enjoys an ocean Mediterranean climate, with mild moderately wet winters and dry warm summers.
- 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.
