I had a great time, I’ve yearned to fly like that for quite some time and was ecstatic to finally find a good place and price to pursue a hang gliding experience. Well worth the money, the pilots were super professional and gave me a lot of information about how they got started, what to look for in conditions, and how they go about hang gliding and paragliding in their own time. Great info, great time, cheers Luke thx my dude.

It’s not hanging; it’s flying!

I actually felt like the eye of the bird, rather than just having the view! Soaring above the clouds seeing as far in the distance as Wanaka, it’s a must-do if you like a mix of adrenaline with peace and tranquility! ? 10/10 would recommend to a friend! ✌️
