Soarin'... Flyin'...

My wife and I had an amazing experience with our first time gliding. For me, the scenery from way up there in the gliders is breathtaking. We were lucky to have such a clear day where we could essentially see out to the horizon. Beautiful sights and picturesque views out to Mount Cook and Lake Pukaki. My wife, being the thrill seeker that she is, had a more adventurous experience with her glider doing some loops and aerial acrobatics - so if that's what you're looking for, they have that available too. Highly recommended and well worth the drive from Queenstown.

Gliding in omarama

Such a great experience for my 11 year old son. The glider pilot sabrina gave a exception pre flight run down. From that experience my son wants to be a glider pilot. He has now joined youth glide

Better than the best

I had the most of the best experience in my life! And I’m so lucky the weather is super fine which made the gliding even more awesome! The pilot is so informative and fun and we did the ‘competition end’ which is so thrilling and amazing as I love adrenaline rush. She also let me take control of the glider, and that is something I will never forget! Thank you glide-Omarama, really an experience of a lifetime!
