Tandem Paragliding Plus Photos - Wanaka


Experience an exhilarating big mountain paragliding flight with stunning views of Lake Wanaka!


  • One of New Zealand's Highest Tandem Flights
  • Outstanding Views
  • World Class Tandem Pilots
  • An easy few steps and you are flying like a bird!

Wanaka Paragliding's big mountain tandem flight from Treble Cone is one of the highest flights in the country. With incredible views of the Matukituki valley and Lake Wanaka, this is an experience of a lifetime.

The friendly team at Wanaka Paragliding will meet you at the bottom of Treble Cone, and upon arrival at the launch site, we will fit your paragliding harness and your pilot will give you a safety briefing.

Feel the anticipation build as you walk, run and then become fully airborne!

Relax back in your harness, breath in the incredible views and crisp clean air and experience the sensation of flying free.

Along the way you'll cruise along the beautiful Treble Cone range and up close to the beautiful Twin Falls.

Passengers are able to choose from a gentle floating descent or for the more adventurous, wingovers and spirals before landing softly next to your car.

This full paragliding experience also includes a photo package and your pilot will capture all of the fun on the inflight camera.

Per Person $299.00

What an unforgettable experience !

It was my first time paragliding and had an amazing time. The conditions were perfects : snowy mountains in the background, blue sky, light wind and great team. I felt completely safe with Dan. I did not feel scared at all, just focusing on this amazing time flying through the air. I highly recommend this ! Very professional, kind and friendly team. Will do it again for sure !!

Loved it!

My instructor was very supportive and encouraging, she knew I was very nervous and afraid of heights, so she started to sing with me and that calmed me down. Very beautiful nature and view from up there. And the pictures and videos were also amazing. Thank you very much for the adventure! Greetings from Estonia, Mari

Awesome experience must do

Richard and team are very experience in what they do. My 7 year old and my wife loved the beautiful scenery and flying over this beautiful place. It’s a must do activity if you are in Wanaka or Queenstown.
