Paragliding - Sumner Village

Experience the exciting sport of tandem paragliding, while overlooking Christchurch City, the majestic Southern Alps and vast stretches of pristine coastline.

Launch high above the famous seaside settlement of Sumner, on the eastern fringes of Christchurch city - and enjoy exceptional vistas north toward the Kaikoura ranges, east over the sea, and south toward Mount Hutt and the Southern Alps.

Feel the warm air currents and thermals gently rising from the port hills.

An experience not to be missed while you are visting the region and a bucket list activity.

Im like a bird as Nelly Furtado once sang!

Would highly recommend this activity - instructor was great and the experience itself something everyone should have a go at! I was picked up in Sumner which is easy to get to with regular buses going from the city centre in Christchurch.

Anniversary Surprise

I booked the paragliding for our 10th wedding anniversary as a surprise for my wife. When I told her what we were going to do she was somewhat apprehensive, however, she thoroughly enjoyed it and so did I. The take off was certainly an adrenaline rush and the flight itself was amazing.We would recommend it to anyone. A point to note is that the time of your flight cannot be guaranteed due to weather conditions on the day. For example, our flight was booked for 11.00am but we didn't actually take off until about 3.00pm.

Excellent service & experience

Dave was great, really relaxed & organised. The weather wasn't playing game that day but he still made sure we had a ball! Would recommend this to anyone!

Sweet Sumner Paraviews

Dave was great, friendly and very safety conscious. My partner and I had found the glide down over Sumner to be very smooth and relaxing - definitely recommended!
