We touch down into New Zealand’s wonder, Wanaka, a wonderland where mountains reminiscent of the Apennines and the Alps make for some amazing flights with breathtaking views. Similar conditions to that of the Apennines will float you over valleys, rivers and pristine lakes. You will find yourself in the perfect playground here as it’s possible to surf, base jump and paraglide all in one day.
Our brother and teammate, Stefano Gigli will be our guide in this wonderland. Stefano chose to live part of his life on this side of the world he says, “Because it’s the last continent historically discovered by the Europeans and especially because of the unrelenting natural surroundings, and native cultures which come together in an explosive mix of colors, smells and smiles.”
Our journey begins in Christchurch, from there we will drive through this amazing land towards our destiny, Wanaka.
It is not a journey on the other side of the world as many like to call, it all depends on your perspective, if you choose to live the dream, the distance, as in paragliding, becomes the desire of exploration.
