Getting sky high over Queenstown

The incredible views of Queenstown can only really be appreciated by getting sky high so we’ve picked a few of our favourites.

Skydiving

It goes without saying that skydiving is one the most adrenaline pumping ways to check out the incredible mountain views of Queenstown.

When you skydive with NZONE Skydive you jump over Lake Wakatipu and The Remarkables mountain rage. On a clear day you can even see all the way to Mount Cook!

Paragliding

If jumping out a perfectly good plane isn’t your thing why not give paragliding a go. With G Force tandem paragliding you launch from the Skyline Gondola in the heart of Queenstown and fly over Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu.

Scenic Flights

Didn’t get to fly into Queenstown’s award winning airport on your arrival? Don’t miss out on the chance to experience the spectacular arrival by booking a scenic flight with one of the many quality operators in Queenstown.

Whether you’re wanting to picnic off the beaten path, heli-ski or take a trip to Milford Sound there’s an operator with a trip for you. View a list of Queenstown scenic flight operators here.

Hot Air Ballooning

Starting early in the morning with Sunrise Balloons you’ll see the sun rising over the mountains. As the sun comes up you’ll float across beautiful Queenstown before touching back down to enjoy a gourmet breakfast.

It’s the perfect way to start your day in the Adventure Capital of the World.
