“Great place. Definitely in our top 5. Quiet, private and awesome facilities. Thank you”-- Naya & Raz, Israel

If you are looking for an exhilarating and mountain soaring adventure, Omarama is the place to be. Known as a haven for gliders, this part of North Otago near Mt. Cook, offers an extraordinary and crystal clear view of the airspace in the region.

Like so many pilots from all over the world who converge every year to experience the unique thermal condition produced by the Southern Alps, you will also enjoy the clear blue sky above and the stunning scenery of the mountains, rivers and valleys below.

We can help you with arrangements, like finding an instructor and the best place to experience this adventure.
